Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ for our inspections category. This score is far more impressive than the place's overall score. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. It actually outpaced most facilities in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is generally a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Cedar Ridge Inn?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
