Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. This is much better than its overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
This facility also received favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. This is better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Does this page answer your questions about Heritage Nursing and Rehabilitation Community?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. When calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area 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.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a major concern. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home vaccinated 97.9798 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
