Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this nursing home earned a somewhat respectable long-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's personal care instead of the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Gilmer Nursing and Rehabilitation?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care, which proved to be a low point for this facility. We gave this facility a D for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
