Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a B+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home an impressive score in short-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our more impressive scores. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Does this page answer your questions about Pahrump Health and Rehabilitation Center?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest area. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is certainly a major disappointment. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.2477 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
