Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This facility actually received a good grade for short-term care. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing rating is based on many datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Does this page answer your questions about Hearthstone Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. One of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that inspectors found a deficiency which places patient safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Lastly, we need to point out that this facility was assessed large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, this nursing home did not fare well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 90 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than average. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
