Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded them a B in this category, which happens to be one of our better. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 88.100685 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is somewhat lower than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Envoy of Staunton?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few components, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next category, we gave this facility a grade of D in our short-term care category. This was the nursing home's worst category grade. Short-term care grades are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
