Registered Staff Hours
We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a strong grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in that category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.25651 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Premier Estates of Dublin?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this area. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this facility really didn't perform very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's weakest category grade. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It looks like this facility was subpar in many staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its patients returning home.
