Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it an A+ in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having access to complete deficiency data for this facility, it ended up being challenging to really assess the place in terms of this category.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility is also above average in the area of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outperformed most facilities in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 82.831856 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we expected but still a decent percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. 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 Crowne Health Care of Eufaula?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. The nursing rating includes several datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was short-term care. We gave this facility a D for our short-term care category, rendering this the facility's weakest category grade. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for individuals needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
