Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing score this year. We gave it a B- in this area. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. 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, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care grade, which is not a bad grade. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 98.9011 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Consulate Health Care of Tallahassee?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed significant government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This usually means that a nursing home's poor track record spanned several years.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care, where this facility received a very poor score in this category also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Based on its weak grade in this category, we weren't shocked to find this facility offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
