Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this place a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have too many deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this category. In crafting our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we assessed was long-term care, where this facility received a grade of C in this category. With our long-term care assessment, we assess the volume of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a few qualitative metrics. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.8024 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. This facility was able to keep 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 figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Envoy of Whester Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: C

In Envoy of Whester, 8.72% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This indicates the percentage of residents who have had a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, which are also referred to as bed sores, are routinely caused by patients not being moved frequently enough. Better nursing care can limit the number of pressure ulcers sustained by residents in a nursing home.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: F

In Envoy of Whester, 3.64% of Patients had Serious Falls

This tells you the percentage of residents that suffered from a major fall. Falls leading to serious injury are often associated with lower quality nursing care. More supervision reduces the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain major falls.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B-minus

In Envoy of Whester, 2.55% of Patients had UTIs

This indicates the percentage of residents that have had a urinary tract infection. UTI's are considered by many in the nursing home industry to be an indicator of the quality of nursing care at a nursing home. UTI's are often the result of worse hygiene protocols. However, this datapoint may also be misleading for some nursing homes due to varying reporting standards for these infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: D

In Envoy of Whester, 13.56% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This indicates the percent of patients given antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic medications are prescribed to patients for many conditions, such as dementia. Tragically, in limited situations, excessive reliance on these medications may mean that a facility is using these drugs to control patient behavior.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: B

In Envoy of Whester, 20.28% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This metric measures the percentage of long-term patients which were administered antianxiety medication. These drugs are used to treat patients experiencing anxiety or depression.

This datapoint measures the percentage of long-term patients who are showing depressive symptoms.

This metric is a measure of the number of times residents are rehospitalized per 1,000 days of short-term patient care. Staying out of the hospital during rehabilitation is key to restoring the health of residents.

In Envoy of Whester, 11.62 Percentage of Patients

This is the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term care.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: B

In Envoy of Whester, 75.54% Percentage of Resident

This metric is a measure of the percent of short-term stay residents that saw functional improvements, such as enhanced ability to perform activities of daily living. Many in the industry believe that this is a reasonable measure of rehabilitation services.
