On top of being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed this well in this area. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a 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
Contributing to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also received a high-end long-term care grade. We gave them an elite strong of A in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Although it had 2.86 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was middle of the road due to it having more complicated patients.
Does this page answer your questions about Oakhaven Nursing Center?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. When determining a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in this area, with a B-. While this wasn't on par with several of this facility's other grades, it is still not a bad grade. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed respectably with 46.9 percent of its residents returning home.
