This facility received a long-term care rating which is stronger than its overall score. We awarded this facility a B+ in this area. This really boosted its overall grade. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.55157 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it earned an B. Few facilities fared better in this area. Our nursing grade weighs numerous factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category.

Does this page answer your questions about Beaufort Nursing and Rehab?
Moving on to our inspection category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D, which was not one of this place's better scores. Our inspection rating is based on the facility's inspections. One of the most significant factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility had one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by the government inspectors had the potential to cause actual harm to patients. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This usually signifies that a facility's poor track record spanned multiple years.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home was below average in many staffing figures we assess. The nursing home supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.
