Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.32886 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, 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 Mt Pleasant Healthcare and Rehabilitation?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a poor grade. This is clearly a major concern. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.6 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
