Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home really fared well in long-term care. We gave it an A- for that area. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.05195 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
We also wanted to emphasize this place's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Hartsville Convalescent Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. There are quite a few datapoints included in this category. Most of the criteria reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, which was this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
