Registered Staff Hours
We really were not high on this nursing home's overall scores or its category grades. We gave it a grade of just just D for our nursing rating and that turned out to be its highest grade. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is not great. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only received a D for its long-term care grade, which happens to be one of its more favorable category scores. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 42.615013 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a few points below the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Lackawanna Health and Rehab Center?
This nursing home received very weak government inspection reports in recent years, causing them to receive a lowly F in our inspection category. An F in this area is typically a sign that we found red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 9 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's poor track record has been an issue for multiple years.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In crafting our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a score this poor for this area, we weren't stunned to learn this place was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The nursing home supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home.
