Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next most favorable score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. In crafting these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Based on its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Richmond Health Care Center?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing grade includes several subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provided only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 26.845636 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is several points below the national average. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
