Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate deficiency counts for this nursing home. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't perform poorly in the category of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of B- in that area, which is among its higher grades. Our long-term care grades are more important for people needing more conventional services related to personal care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 93.3735 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Claiborne Rehabilitation?
We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. When determining our nursing grades, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility received an abysmal grade in this area also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, 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 assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
