Registered Staff Hours
Although this facility's overall score was terrible, it actually performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that area, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't fare too badly in the category of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of C for that area, which turned out to be another one of its more favorable scores. In computing our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a nursing home's residents. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.57175 percent of its patients. This place 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 an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Cedars Healthcare Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home did not fare very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.
