Registered Staff Hours
Even though we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. This score is more respectable than the facility's overall score. The nursing category is based on quite a few datapoints, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a decent grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Fort Vancouver Post Acute?
This facility earned slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of C in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This facility had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to note that this nursing home has been assessed some government fines recently. We were relieved to find that these were not on the high end as government fines go. Nevertheless, this still is not what you like to see.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 86.84211 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
