Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it earned a decent grade in short-term care. We awarded it a B- for that category. This bailed out its overall score to a degree. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of C in the area. Nursing scores are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents at least once a day.
Does this page answer your questions about Divine Rehabilitation & Nursing at Fennimore?
This nursing home earned slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We gave them a C in this area. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was long-term care, ended up being this facility's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.278915 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
