Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this nursing home a terrible overall score, we gave it a grade of A- for short-term care. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Unfortunately, this nursing home's second best category was the area of inspections. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still fared poorly. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we want to point out that this place received significant government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a bad performance spanned several years.
Does this page answer your questions about Sellersburg Healthcare Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a poor grade in this area as well. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
