Long-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent inspection reports. We awarded it an A- for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Chisolm Trail Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. The nursing rating weighs several subcategories, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category was short-term care, which is the last category we looked at. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. In forming our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this facility was subpar in two of the key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
