Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had too many severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable category turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Ely Manor?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep 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.
