Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home an A- for our short-term care grade. This score is much more impressive than its overall grade. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that area with a score of B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Does this page answer your questions about Future Care Irvington?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is clearly a major disappointment. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 94.57504 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
