Long-term Care Quality
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we actually awarded it a fairly strong grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.44269 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Surprisingly, this facility actually received an impressive nursing grade this year as well. We gave it a grade of B in this category. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Does this page answer your questions about Pleasant Manor Nursing & Rehab?
This nursing home received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, which is a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
