Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't grade out too badly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a C for that category, which turned out to be among its more respectable scores. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Chris Jensen Health & Rehabilitation Center?
Among this place's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection score. Generally, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspections. For places with poor inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 86.56331 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
