Registered Staff Hours
On top of being a quality facility overall, this place especially excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Not many nursing homes performed better in that area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home performed well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our best scores. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Clarksville Nursing Center?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 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.
