Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a poor overall grade, we awarded it a B for our inspections category. This is due to the nursing home receiving a decent inspection report this year. Our inspection scores are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 9 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
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next most favorable category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 85.89744 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Charleston Rehab & Health Care Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing score includes a handful of subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more critical for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
