Long-term Care Quality
While we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in long-term care, where it earned a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. This helped its overall profile to some degree. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 75.14793 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
We actually gave this facility a very solid grade in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Quincy Health and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. The nursing grade assesses many components, however, the main one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is well below average. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a poor grade in this category as well. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
