Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of long-term care, where it received an A. Few facilities did better in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final category, we gave this facility a grade of A for its short-term care rating. This finished off a very strong report card. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Grade: A-plus

In Heritage Health-Minonk, 8.73% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: C

In Heritage Health-Minonk, 3.45% of Patients had Serious Falls

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: B-minus

In Heritage Health-Minonk, 18.11% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This metric indicates the percent of long-term care residents that are administered antipsychotic drugs. High levels of antipsychotic drug use may suggest that a facility is using these medications to control patient behavior in situations where such drugs aren't medically required. However, some facilities may need to rely on these drugs due to an increased number of patients with dementia.

In Heritage Health-Minonk, 19.04% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

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