Long-term Care Quality
Even though we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable long-term care score this year. We gave it a B in this category, which was far better than its overall score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 49.36709 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We were also pleasantly surprised to award this facility a relatively favorable government inspection grade as well. We awarded it a B- in this category, which was much better than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Does this page answer your questions about Landmark of River City Rehabilitation and Nursing?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing grade includes many datapoints, however, the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With a grade this poor for this area, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in many staffing areas we assess. The facility offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
