Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we didn't have any positive things to say about this nursing home's overall score or its category grades. Its best category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of just D in this area, it still performed poorly. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility was below average in the two key staffing figures we assess. In fact, it supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Does this page answer your questions about Advena Living of Cherryvale?
We wanted to draw your attention to this facility's inspection score where it received an F. For facilities with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with a category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. Lastly, we want to point out that this facility received large government fines totaling over $100,000. This typically indicates that a bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 76.521736 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
