Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we did give it a strong grade in nursing, where it received a grade of B. Our nursing rating includes quite a few datapoints, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient more often.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Consulate Health Care of Tallahassee?
This nursing home did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, it only received a grade of D for its inspection grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines amounting to over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's bad track record spanned more than one year.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, this facility really did not perform very well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.26168 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
