Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also fared well in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a score of A- for that area, which happens to be one of our best scores. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.13669 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Harlem Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. Our nursing grade is based on many subcategories, but the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. For this area, we awarded this facility a D. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we discovered that this facility offered less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
