Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was terrible, it performed pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing scores are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Does this page answer your questions about Accordius Health at Brevard?
Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a a very poor grade in our short-term care category. It was given an F in this area. Our short-term care scores are arguably more critical for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is a poor grade. Facilities that do not score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 26.839827 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
