Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a strong long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 87.41258 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it 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 Hallmark Care Center?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. Our nursing score includes several factors, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent grade in this area, with a grade of B-. Although this was not as high as a few of its other grades, it is still not a major area of concern. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
