Long-term Care Quality
Even though we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we actually gave it a fairly strong grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a B. This is better than many facilities in this area. This helped an otherwise abysmal profile. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.43705 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our better grades. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Hathaway Manor Extended Care?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Turning our last category of inspections, this nursing home received a terrible score. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also need to point out that this place received large government fines in recent years of more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a facility's poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
