Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a positive score in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our more impressive scores. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 91.34615 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Correctionville Specialty Care?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. When determining our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It looks like this facility was below average in many staffing metrics we looked at. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
