Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a poor overall grade, we also gave this facility poor scores across the board in our category grades. It received just a D for its nursing score, which is its best category. In determining a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing patients and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's next most favorable category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Does this page answer your questions about Rochelle Gardens Care Center?
This facility received very weak government inspections in recent years, causing us to give them an F for inspections. An F in this area is usually a sign that there were red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For facilities with bad inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility had a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by CMS had potential to pose actual harm to patients. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at was long-term care, where this facility was given a poor score in this category also. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated only 86.98225 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
