Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that area with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade and that actually turned out to be its second most respectable category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about New Dawn Health Care Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 74.40476 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
