Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a favorable grade in long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our more impressive grades. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 58.633095 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients 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.
Does this page answer your questions about Evergreen Commons Rehabilitation and Nursing Center?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. 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. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care, which is this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Naturally, this category pulled down the facility's overall profile a bit. Our short-term care ratings are important for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the data we considered. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
