Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the pack grade in the category of short-term care, with a C. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This area is considered to be a solid assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Monroe Rehabilitation Center?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. There are quite a few factors within this area. Many of these datapoints are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 83.63637 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
