Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a quality overall score as described above, but we especially want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a grade of A- for our long-term care grade. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Garrison Nursing Home & Rehabilitation Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's worst area. We gave it an F for this area, which is obviously somewhat concerning. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home.
