Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home earned a decent overall grade, its inspections rating is notably better than its overall score. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it a B in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. In forming these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Does this page answer your questions about Cedar Ridge Inn?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving patients even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
