Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this area with an A-. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. In the area of long-term care, we weigh the amount of care offered by a facility, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 85.333336 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations 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?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth area, we awarded this facility a D for short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its abysmal grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find this facility provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
