Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which was much better than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 3 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.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its better scores. The nursing home was given a B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Azria Health-Central City?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. There are a variety of criteria included in this area. Most of the datapoints are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a poor grade. Facilities that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.27468 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we expected but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
