Short-term Care Quality
Although this nursing home's overall grade was abysmal, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care rating. We gave it a C for that category, which is a decent score. That said, this wasn't enough to salvage its profile. With our short-term care rating, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's rock bottom overall grade. It earned a C in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 11 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Does this page answer your questions about Beachwood Post-Acute & Rehab?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. In calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this facility didn't perform very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.853584 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
