Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care score this year. We gave it a C in that area, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we found for this place. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing score includes a handful of components, however, the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a patient at least once a day.
Does this page answer your questions about Medilodge of Farmington?
We wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grade where it received an F. This often means we found red flags on the inspection reports. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had potential to create actual harm to residents. Finally, we want to point out that this place received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This generally suggests that a nursing home's poor track record spanned multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a very poor score here also. It received an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated only 85.13513 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.07 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
