Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent grade in the area of long-term care, with a B-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.51923 percent of its residents. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Chambers Nursing Home Center?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this area as well. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
