Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also performed well in the category of long-term care, with high-end score of A- in this category. Facilities that excel in this category tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.4359 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Mountains Community Hospital Distinct Part Skilled Nursing?
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It earned one of our better grades in that category with an above average grade of F. The nursing rating includes several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is clearly very disappointing. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
