Long-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in long-term care. We gave them an A+ in this area. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 78.5558 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Does this page answer your questions about Oak Hill?
We awarded this nursing home a grade of A for inspections. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not 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.
Short-term Care Quality
The fourth area we scored was short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very impressive profile. Few nursing homes received a B+ or higher in in each area we assessed. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
