Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is it earned a very favorable inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded favorable long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with a B. This turned out to be the facility's second strongest score. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Golden Villa?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. The nursing rating analyzes many subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care, proved to be this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Based on its score in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
