Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. This facility was assessed 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a C for its long-term care score, which isn't a bad grade. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated a relatively low 81.42415 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing rating weighs quite a few components, most of which are based on nursing hours. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we looked at was short-term care, where this facility received a rock bottom grade in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In determining these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. As you might expect, we learned that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Columbus Colony Elderly Care Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A-plus

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 7.61% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This is the percent of residents that sustained a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers are considered by many in the nursing home industry to be a barometer of nursing care at a nursing home. Pressure ulcers, also referred to as bed sores, are often caused by patients not being moved frequently enough.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B-minus

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 3.74% of Patients had Serious Falls

This figure tells you the percent of long-term care residents who have suffered a fall resulting in serious injury. Falls can happen for a variety of reasons, but excessive numbers of falls may be a sign of lower quality nursing care.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: A

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 1.71% of Patients had UTIs

This statistic is a measure of the percentage of long-term residents which have suffered from urinary tract infections. UTI's could be an indication of a facility with lower levels of hygiene.

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 13.23% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This datapoint tells you the percentage of long-term patients taking antipsychotic drugs. While antipsychotic drugs play an important role in caring for many residents, it is important to make sure these medications are being used only where medically required. In some situations, high levels of antipsychotic drug use may indicate that a nursing home is using these drugs to control patient behavior.

Grade: B-plus

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 22.46% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This indicates the percentage of patients given antianxiety medications. Antianxiety drugs are given to residents suffering from depression or anxiety.

This indicates the number of rehospitalizations per thousand days of short-term patient care.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: A-minus

In Columbus Colony Elderly Care, 75.25% Percentage of Resident

This tells you the percent of short-term patients that experienced functional improvements, such as with activities of daily living. High levels of autonomy with ADL's usually correlates with superior rehabilitation services.
