Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we awarded this facility a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 78.703705 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about New Paltz Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing?
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 C. The nursing grade is based on many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
