Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility performed well in our short-term care category. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Short-term care scores are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
This facility also excelled in inspections. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. This is one of the few nursing homes with an overall grade in this range which earned multiple category grades this high. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Does this page answer your questions about Davis Health Care Center?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this category. This particular nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is long-term care, in which this facility received a B-. While this proved to be its lowest category rating, this is still not the end of the world. Our long-term care grades are based on a nursing home's volume of care. This includes a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 83.263596 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
