Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall score, we gave it a C for our nursing category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this nursing home earned a reasonably solid short-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. In forming these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Hanover Terrace Health & Rehabilitation Center?
Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We gave it a grade of just D for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings weigh many items found on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with one deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it was not in one of the categories that suggest that it caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.34703 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
