Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility received just a D in that category. As it turns out, this wound up being one of its better features. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.417915 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about Consulate Health Care of Norfolk?
We were stunned to find that this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest grades. There are several factors included in this area. Most of the subcategories are tied to nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its weak score in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this place provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.1 percent of its patients returning home.
