Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second best area is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the vaccine to just 89.08451 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Treasure Hills Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best scores. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next area, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Considering its poor grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility offers far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.3 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
