Short-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled at short-term care. We awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. This salvaged its profile. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Inspections is another category where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Does this page answer your questions about Tyler's Retreat at Iron Bridge?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a major concern. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated only 86.59218 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
