Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this place a good overall score, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.92929 percent of its residents. This is somewhat lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. Short-term care scores are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 9.06% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This datapoint is an indication of the percent of long-term care residents who have new or worsened pressure ulcers. We have found that pressure ulcers are an indicator of quality of care.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B-minus

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 3.84% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is the percentage of residents that suffered from a major fall. Falls leading to major injuries are considered by many in the nursing home industry to be a barometer of the quality of nursing care at a nursing home. Major falls leading to injury are often caused by lower levels of patient supervision.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B-minus

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 2.74% of Patients had UTIs

This is the percentage of patients that suffered from a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are routinely caused by worse hygiene protocols. Closer supervision can reduce the number of UTI's sustained by residents in a nursing home. We want to point out that this datapoint is sometimes skewed by the fact that facilities have incongruent reporting standards for these infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: A

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 15.92% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This is the percent of patients who were given antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic drugs are prescribed to patients for many medical conditions, such as cognitive disorders. Unfortunately, in limited cases, high levels of antipsychotic drug use may suggest that a nursing home is using these medications to control patient behavior.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: D

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 28.85% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This indicates the percentage of residents who were prescribed antianxiety medications. These drugs are typically given to patients experiencing anxiety and depression.

This is the percentage of residents who are exhibiting signs of depression.

Appropriate Vaccine Usage

Grade: C

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 90.04% of Patients

This is the percentage of residents that received the flu and pneumonia vaccines. Higher vaccination rates should be demanded by residents.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: C

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 15.42% Percentage of Patients

This is the percent of residents who needed increased assistance with activities of daily living over time. Higher levels of dependence on staff for assistance with ADL's may indicate the decline of a resident's well-being.

In Vanceburg Rehabilitation and Care, 1.59 Hospitalizations per 1,000 resident days

This is a measure of the number of hospitalizations per 1,000 days of patient care.
