Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is much more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care score turns out to be one of its better features. The nursing home received a C in this category. In determining these long-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's personal care services. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.76471 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Mountain View Health & Rehab?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was short-term care, which is a weak link for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. In forming these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Based on its score in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home.
