Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility an abysmal overall score, we gave it a C for our nursing rating. When determining a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for its short-term care score, which isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Restore Health University City?
This nursing home received an F for its inspection rating. For nursing homes with bad inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also want to point out that this facility received significant government fines recently of over $50,000. This often signifies that inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of failed government inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 56.510418 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points below what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
