Short-term Care Quality
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more critical for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing scores are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Does this page answer your questions about Enterprise Estates Nursing Center?
Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. You should be most cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. Tragically, this nursing home was hit with one category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates multiple widespread threats to resident safety or health. A deficiency in this category is toxic to a nursing home's inspection rating. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 97.560974 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
