Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category score came in the area of nursing. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. The nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's higher category grades was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B. Short-term care scores are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Abbey Woods Center for Rehabilitation and Healing?
This nursing home's inspection grade appears to be one of its best features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in category J, K or L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to put patient health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in that area. Long-term care grades are vital for people in need of personal care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 82.69231 percent of its patients. This is significantly lower than what we were hoping for. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
