Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a poor overall grade, we also gave this nursing home terrible scores across the board in each of the categories. In fact, it only received a D for its inspections score, which is its top area. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Does this page answer your questions about Liberty Commons Nursing and Rehabilitation Center of Johnston County?
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. In calculating these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. As you might expect, we learned that this place offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor score in this area as well. It received a lowly F for this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After considering the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 89.96282 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
