Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a positive score in our short-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B+ in that category. Short-term care scores are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
Does this page answer your questions about Pruitthealth - Griffin?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. There are a variety of datapoints within this category. Many of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Finally, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a significant disappointment. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.31544 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
