Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Highland Pines Nursing Home?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in the area of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our nursing grade is based on many datapoints, but the main one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. Short-term care scores are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its poor rating in this category, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
