Long-term Care Quality
This place actually did not perform quite as poorly in long-term care. We awarded it a B- for that category. Our long-term care grades are more important for residents needing more conventional services related to activities of daily living. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. The nursing rating is based on many datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Does this page answer your questions about Hanford Post Acute?
Unfortunately, this facility received really weak inspections in recent years, causing them to receive a lowly F for inspections. An F in this category is usually a sign that we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspections. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This usually signifies that a bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this area. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its patients returning home.
