We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A-. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care rating is one of its more favorable scores. The nursing home received a grade of C in this category. In determining our long-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's personal care services. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 92.94118 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Cla-Clif Nursing and Rehab Center?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. When calculating our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. 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. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is short-term care, proved to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
