Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it a B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our better. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.35889 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Triboro Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing?
The next area we looked at was nursing, where we gave this facility an F. This was definitely one of this facility's major weaknesses. The nursing grade is based on several components, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is obviously a significant concern. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is frequently a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. With a grade in this range for this area, we were not stunned to find this nursing home was below average in several staffing figures we assess. The facility supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
