Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for short-term care. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most important for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to learn that this nursing home received a somewhat respectable long-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a C in that category. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for residents in need of more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Edgerton Care Center?
We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest grades. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Turning the final category of inspections, this nursing home fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This is the most heavily weighted category in our grading system. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
