Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given favorable long-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 97.265625 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it was above average in this metric with 50.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the final category we looked at. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our nursing score assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is below average. On top of receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this place was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of patients suffering pressure ulcers and found this nursing home was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign when you consider that many pressure ulcers are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic pulled down this facility's nursing grade substantially.

Schofield Residence Quality Metrics

Grade: B

In Schofield Residence, 9.64% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B

In Schofield Residence, 3.1% of Patients had Serious Falls

This indicates the percentage of patients prescribed antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic drugs are given to residents for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer's or other dementias.

Grade: B-minus

In Schofield Residence, 18.9 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

This metric measures the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term patient care. Keeping residents out of the hospital during rehabilitation is critical to restoring the physical well-being of patients.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: B-minus

In Schofield Residence, 8.78 Percentage of Patients

This is the number of emergency room visits per 1,000 days of short-term patient care. There is typically a correlation between reduced emergency room visits and the quality of nursing home care.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: F

In Schofield Residence, 74.53% Percentage of Resident

This is the percentage of short-term stay residents who experienced functional improvements, such as with activities of daily living. High levels of performance with ADL's typically correlates with higher quality rehabilitation services.
