Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. In forming our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
This nursing home did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, it received a D for its inspection rating, which was unfortunately its second best category. One of the most important factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
Does this page answer your questions about Summerstone Health and Rehabilitation Center?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. The nursing grade is based on a handful of subcategories, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.31336 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
