Long-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A+. There are numerous factors included in this category. Many of these factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Does this page answer your questions about Redwood Healthcare Center?
We awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B. Even though this wasn't as strong as some of its other scores, it is still a fine grade. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more important for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
