Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a nursing score which is better than its overall grade. We gave this facility an above average score of B+ in this category. In determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this area. With our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Talahi Nursing and Rehab Center?
This facility received somewhat favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place had 10 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category J through L deficiencies. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to put patient health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care. It received an F in this category, which is a very poor score. This is clearly a major concern. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 96.4467 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
