Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. We weren't able to locate deficiency data for this facility. We would like to have more data for this nursing home. Without having deficiency data, it was a challenge to fully assess this facility in the area of inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually outpaced most facilities in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Jacksonville Healthcare Center?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. The nursing category is based on a handful of factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its weak rating in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this nursing home provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
