Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded impressive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest score. When nursing homes receive a grade 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 looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.6 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Emerald Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare 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 score features many factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next area, this nursing home really did not perform well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's poorest grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. As you might expect, we discovered that this place offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
