Located in Rochester, New Hampshire, Colonial Hill Center is one of a mere two available facilities in this area. This is a well below average facility, with an overall grade of D. This wasn't the worse nursing home we found, however, we'd still be very reluctant to recommend it. We would not blame you if you are ready to stop reading and find another nursing home. However, if you want to learn more about this facility's category grades, we will discuss short-term care in the next paragraph.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility earned an impressive short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a B+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are likely most important for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B-. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility earned slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you this facility dodged the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we rated was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.41706 percent of its patients, which is a bit lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
