Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a C. Long-term care scores are essential for people needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.203964 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Conestoga View?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. There are quite a few datapoints included in this category. Many of the subcategories relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With a grade in this range in this category, we weren't surprised to discover this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. The facility offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
