Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's impressive category scores came in the category of long-term care. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 92.1875 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we expected but still a decent figure. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. The nursing score is based on a variety of datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we rated was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Heritage of Red Cloud Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A-plus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 5.27% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This is the percent of residents who have had a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, also referred to as bed sores, are often caused by residents not being moved frequently enough. Better nursing care minimizes the number of pressure ulcers sustained by residents in a nursing home.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: F

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 4.96% of Patients had Serious Falls

This tells you the percentage of patients who sustained a major fall. Falls leading to severe injury are often caused by poor nursing care. Closer supervision minimizes the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain major falls.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 3.66% of Patients had UTIs

This indicates the percent of patients that suffered from a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are routinely caused by facilities with lower levels of hygiene. Better hygiene protocols can limit the percentage of residents in a nursing home who suffer from UTI's. Note that this datapoint is sometimes skewed by the fact that facilities have incongruent reporting standards for urinary tract infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: B-minus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 18.62% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This is the percentage of residents who were prescribed antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic drugs are prescribed to residents for many medical conditions, such as cognitive disorders. Tragically, in some cases, excessive reliance on these medications may suggest a nursing home is using these drugs to subdue residents.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: C

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 19.92% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This figure is an indication of the percent of long-term residents that are administered antianxiety drugs. These drugs are generally prescribed to patients experiencing depression or anxiety.

Managing Depression Among Residents

Grade: B-plus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 4.32% of Patients

This datapoint measures the percent of long-term care residents exhibiting depressive symptoms.

Appropriate Vaccine Usage

Grade: B-minus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 93.19% of Patients

This is the percentage of patients that were administered the flu and pneumonia vaccines. High vaccination rates should be the norm at this point.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: C

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 14.85% Percentage of Patients

This metric measures the percentage of long-term care patients who needed additional assistance with activities of daily living over time. ADL's include activities such as moving around and eating. Some argue that this is a measure of a resident's well-being.

Ability to Keep Residents Mobile

Grade: A-minus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 18.85% Percentage of Residents

This is a measure of the percentage of long-term patients who were able to retain mobility. Some experts argue that mobility is critical to residents' physical and mental well-being.

Hospitalizations

Grade: A-plus

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 1.37 Hospitalizations per 1,000 resident days

This indicates the number of hospitalizations per thousand days of patient care. There is generally a correlation between reduced hospitalizations and the overall quality of care.

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

Grade: C

In Heritage of Red Cloud, 18.85 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

This tells you the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term patient care.
