Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility truly excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Only a select group of facilities performed more favorably in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Heritage Hall Dillwyn?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. There are numerous criteria within this category. Most of these factors reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was short-term care. We awarded it a B- in that category. This is not a bad grade in this category. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
