Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. In calculating our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the training 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 dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to discover that this nursing home earned a somewhat respectable short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this category. Short-term care grades are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 3.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Mission Point Nursing & Physical Rehabilitation Center of Clarkston?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. Generally, you should be most cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This usually signifies that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for several years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a very poor grade. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
