Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B+ for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't rate poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C in that area, which wound up being another one of its higher grades. In our short-term care category, we try to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Chris Jensen Health & Rehabilitation Center?
We wanted to note that this nursing home received a lowly F for its inspection grade. An F in this category is alarming because it usually points to red flags on the nursing home's government inspections. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. This generally means that inspectors identified a deficiency which places patient health or safety in immediate danger. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed significant government fines recently of over $100,000. This typically means that a facility's poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to just 87.12121 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
