Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it a grade of A. Our inspection scores are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are probably more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Miller's Merry Manor?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. We gave it a lowly F in this area. Even with multiple decent grades in other categories, this grade is still disappointing so we wanted to point it out. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated a relatively low 87.28813 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
