The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a solid grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a B-. Our long-term care scores are more important for residents requiring more traditional assistance associated with personal care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 92.9078 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Shippenville Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider some quality-focused statistics. We like to look at the percent of patients who experienced pressure ulcers and major falls. These statistics are indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care can reduce these problems.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a D in this area. Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, it looks like it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that just 46.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
