Long-term Care Quality
Although this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform quite as poorly in the area of long-term care. We gave it a C for that area, which isn't bad. This was not enough to spare its otherwise weak profile. Our long-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 65.5582 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Unfortunately, this nursing home's second best category was the area of inspections. Nevertheless, with just a D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Our inspection scores weigh many items on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you find too many deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home had a deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it was not in one of the categories that suggest that it posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines totaling more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a nursing home'sbad track record spanned more than one year.
Does this page answer your questions about Indian Oaks Living Center?
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. There are a variety of criteria within this grade. Many of the subcategories relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home did not fare well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is considered to be a useful assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical nursing home. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
