Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. 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 last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Eden Home?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a D in our long-term care category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
