Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a middle of the pack grade in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Short-term care grades are generally employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Waterville Residential Care Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. The nursing score consists of quite a few components, however, the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was long-term care. It received a lowly F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 73.07693 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
