Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The second best category we gave this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Hickory Creek at Scottsburg?
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this nursing home really did not perform well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 52.066116 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
