Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. Our nursing score consists of many factors, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care rating is one of its more favorable grades. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this area. Short-term care grades are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Fairview Care Center East?
This nursing home earned mediocre inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This nursing home had 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
Our final area is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of C in this area. In computing these long-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's personal care services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 99.18699 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
