Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's best grade came in long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing rating is largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.
Does this page answer your questions about Dr Ronald E Mcnair Nursing & Rehabilitation Center?
This facility received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
Our last category is short-term care, where we awarded this facility a B- in this area. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
