Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. The lack of deficiencies proved to be this place's greatest strength.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. With our long-term care category, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, along with a few qualitative metrics. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 96.875 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. 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 Guest House Nursing and Rehabilitation?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. The nursing grade includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care, where this facility was given a poor score in this area as well. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. Short-term care ratings are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
