Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the area of long-term care, with a B-. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.60317 percent of its patients. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Central Nursing Home?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This statistic is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3 percent of its patients returning home.
