Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall score, this nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it received an A. Nursing ratings are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of A for that area, which happens to be one of our most impressive scores. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most important for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Does this page answer your questions about Fort Vancouver Post Acute?
Looking to our inspection category, we gave this nursing home a D, which was not one of this facility's better scores. Our inspection score is based on the facility's inspections. Our inspection grades factor in many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular facility was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 5 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a D in this category. Unfortunately, this grade hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 90.804596 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
