Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's abysmal long-term care grade where it was given an F. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 73.36957 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Cottingham Retirement Community?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home did not perform well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Short-term care grades are crucial for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
