Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate terribly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a B- for that area, which wound up being another one of its higher scores. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Arbors at Fairlawn?
Interestingly, this facility's terrible overall score probably can't be attributed to its government inspections. We awarded it a C for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This place had 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 87.61905 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly less than average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
