Best Nursing Home in Connellys Springs, North Carolina Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this category. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of D. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, we gave this facility a D in long-term care. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 94.38596 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
