Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this place also earned first-rate government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in this area, with an A. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, short-term care turned out to be its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a score of A-. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Does this page answer your questions about Court House Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive category. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is certainly a bit concerning. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.417725 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
