Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Not having any deficiencies is this nursing home's greatest accomplishment.
Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually ended up being its next most favorable category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.590164 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about Mid Valley Nursing & Rehabilitation?
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care, where this facility was given a very poor grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
