Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility an impressive grade of A for our long-term care score. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.49123 percent of its residents, which is higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Quapaw Care and Rehabilitation Center?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our nursing score analyzes a handful of factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is obviously a major concern. In determining our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the staffing figures we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
