Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than its overall grade. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded an impressive long-term care score. In fact, we gave it a B+ in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Oneida Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing grade weighs a number of subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a D in the area of short-term care, making this the nursing home's worst grade. In our short-term care category, we seek to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
