Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is certainly a good sign for this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher grades. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was short-term care, which was this nursing home's worst area. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is clearly very concerning. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its residents returning home.

This is the percentage of residents that have had a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are routinely linked to worse hygiene protocols.

Grade: A

In The Garrison Geriatric Education and Care Center, 11.48% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This datapoint measures the percent of long-term stay patients receiving antipsychotic medications. While antipsychotic drugs play an important role in caring for many residents, it is important to confirm these medications are being used only where medically required. In limited cases, excessive reliance on these medications may suggest a facility is using these medications to control patient behavior.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: B-minus

In The Garrison Geriatric Education and Care Center, 22.56% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This indicates the percent of patients prescribed antianxiety drugs. Antianxiety drugs are prescribed to residents experiencing anxiety and depression.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: A

In The Garrison Geriatric Education and Care Center, 11.4 Percentage of Patients

This is the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term care. There is typically a correlation between staying out of the emergency room and the quality of short-term care.
