Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to note that this facility was given positive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second highest score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 85.29801 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Concourse Rehabilitation and Nursing Center?
The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next area, this facility didn't fare well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this was its poorest category grade. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
