Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of long-term care, where it received a C. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 93.827156 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Envoy of Lawrenceville?
We were stunned to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. There are a number of subcategories within this grade. Most of the subcategories relate to levels of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Given its weak grade in this area, we were not shocked to learn this facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home.
