Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home extremely poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a C in that category. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with residents, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most respectable category was short-term care, but it still earned just a D in that area. This is still a relatively poor grade. In determining these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we were not stunned to discover this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The nursing home offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Countryview Care Center-Macomb?
Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For places with poor inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility had 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 71.604935 percent of its patients. This is multiple points below the national average. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
