Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall score as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this area. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's above average category scores came in the category of long-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive scores in that category, with a score of B+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia can be a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Consulate Health Care of Port Charlotte?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing rating weighs a handful of subcategories, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care. For that category, we awarded this facility a B-. Our short-term care scores are important for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
