Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received first-rate health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of A. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received strong marks in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, we gave it one of our most elite scores in that category with a area of A. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about The Chesapeake?
Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. The nursing grade weighs a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the last category we looked at. For this category, we gave this facility an D. We would like to to draw your attention to this potential weak link, but you should not focus exclusively on a single weak area either. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 49.39759 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
