Long-term Care Quality
In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility really fared well in long-term care, where it received an impressive grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.92746 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In addition, this facility earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with an A. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Cedar Lake Nursing Home?
Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is this facility's poorest category. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still gave it a decent grade of B- in short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
