Short-term Care Quality
This facility actually received an impressive short-term care rating this year. We gave it a grade of B in this category. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
We were also pleasantly surprised to award this nursing home a relatively favorable inspection rating as well. We awarded it a respectable grade of B- in this category, which easily topped its overall score. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies.

A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Does this page answer your questions about Good Samaritan Society - Grand Island Village?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this category. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home received an abysmal grade in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 47.402596 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
