Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to point out its decent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it a relatively respectable grade of B- in that category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing rating includes several datapoints, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's third highest category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed is long-term care, which was a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D for our long-term care category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 93.19372 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Heritage Health-Gibson City Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B-minus

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 9.49% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 3.14% of Patients had Serious Falls

This tells you the percent of patients that sustained a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are considered to be an indicator of the quality of nursing care .

Grade: A-minus

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 8.95% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

High levels of antipsychotic drug use may suggest that a facility is using these medications to subdue residents in situations where such medications are not medically indicated. However, some nursing homes need to rely on these medications due to having more patients suffering from cognitive disorders.

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 9.15% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This datapoint measures the percent of long-term residents receiving antianxiety drugs.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: B

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 14.47% of Patients

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

Grade: B

In Heritage Health-Gibson City, 14.94% of Residents Rehospitalized

This indicates the number of rehospitalizations per thousand days of short-term care. There is generally a correlation between having fewer hospitalizations and a nursing home's quality of short-term rehabilitation.

This tells you the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term care.
