Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a 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
Another reason we graded this facility so highly is that it was given an A+ long-term care score. This is simply as dominant as it gets in this category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Golden Rehabilitation and Nursing Center?
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients more often.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in this category, with a grade of B. While this isn't on par with some of its other grades, it is nevertheless a perfectly acceptable score. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
