Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category was its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 83.24325 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly lower than what we expected. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Collar City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in nursing. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. Our nursing grade analyzes quite a few subcategories, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. With our short-term care score, we try to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
