   What is this page all about?

Below is everything shred of information that we can find about F W Huston Medical Center, along with our best effort to make sense of the data. Our purpose here is to help you to make good decisions when picking a nursing home and to keep you informed once you have chosen a home. We know from personal experience that choosing a nursing home is not something you do once and then you forget about it. In fact, it gets worse. Once you select a nursing home and get through the initial steps of figuring out how to pay for it, then the real worries start. Are they taking good care of me or my loved one? This is the question that will keep you up at night: Can I really trust these people? We wish we could answer this question, we can't. What he can do is churn through the tons of data and try and help you to make sense of it. We hope it helps.

   Ratings History

   Review of Irondale Post Acute Ratings and Inspection Scores

CMS regularly inspects every skilled nursing facility. (The timing is supposed to be annually, but since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, these inspections have not occured as frequently.) The results of the multi-day inspection is reduced to a series of scores which are then translated into the star ratings. The health inspection scores are an absolute value, so you can compare one facility's score directly to another. The Overall Star rating is based on the facility's performance as compared to other facilities in the same state, so you cannot easily compare one facility's Overall star rating to a facility in another state.

It has been 3 months since the most recent inspection.

   What Goes Into the Nursing Home's 5-Star Rating

CMS has put a lot of effort into creating its very elaborate 5-Star Quality Rating System specifically to provide a quick way for residents and family members to easily understand how well a nursing home is performing and to make comparing nursing homes easier. The rating system allows people to easily compare facilities across numerous dimensions with the express purpose of identifying the best and best performing nursing homes. The rating system was initially developed in 2008 and the methodologies are regularly reviewed and updated.

The rating system has five separate ratings including:

  • Overall rating
  • Health Inspection rating
  • Staff rating
  • RN Staffing rating
  • Quality Measures rating

Nursing homes are rated from 1-star to 5-stars with 1-star being the worst rating and 5-star being the best rating. For the Health Inspection Rating the nursing homes in each state are ranked based on their weighted three year inspection score. The top 10 percent of nursing homes (those with the lowest scores) are awarded a 5-star rating; the bottom 20 percent (those with the highest scores) are awarded a 1-star rating. In between 1-star and 5-star, the remaining homes are divided equally into three tranches which correspond with the stars 2 to 4. The staff ratings and quality measure ratings follow a similar process but the divisions are based on a national ranking. The division between star ratings is called the “cut-rate”. Cut-rates are redefined periodically and are published by CMS. See the latest cut rates on this table.

Calculating the Overall Star Rating is done differently. According to CMS, the reason for adopting a different system is to give the Health Inspection Rating higher weight in the Overall Rating. So, since there are FIVE ratings and FIVE stars for each rating, there must also be a FIVE step process to calculate the Overall Rating (so symetrical!) :

  1. Begin with the Health Inspection Rating
  2. Add one star to the Health Inspection Rating if the Staffing Rating is at least four-stars and is higher than the Health Inspection Rating. (We will call this the "Adjusted Rating".)
  3. Subtract one star from the Health Inspection Rating if the Staffing Rating is one-star.
  4. Add a star to the Adjusted Rating if the Quality Measure Rating is 5-stars.
  5. Subtract one star from the Adjusted Rating if the Quality Measure Rating is 1-star.

Throughout the calculation of the Overall Rating, the rating cannot exceed 5-stars. The Overall Rating is capped at 2-stars if the Health Inspection rating is 1-star. No Overall Rating is awarded if the nursing home does not have a Health Inspection Rating (This effectively means that a nursing home is not rated until the home has been operating for more than two years.)

Changes in a nursing homes star rating can be due to the results of a new health inspection report, the processing of new complaints, the aging of older complaints, a new inspection control survey, a revisit, or the resolution of disputes that change the scope and or severity of deficiencies.

   Most Recent Nursing Home Inspections

CMS is required to inspect each senior nursing facility at least annually. These inspections take several days. Additional follow-up inspections as conducted as needed or for certain purposes. Inspections stopped for more than seven months in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. That stoppage has caused all inspections to be delayed as the inspectors continue to deal with a backlog. The table below shows the latest inspections for Irondale Post Acute including health, fire, and inspection control inspections:
