Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is a great sign for the quality of care at this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a favorable grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.15014 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize negative health outcomes for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home an D. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last area we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category. Even with a few decent grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we wanted to draw your attention to it. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: C

In Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 9.58% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This is the percentage of patients that sustained a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, also called bed sores, are often the result of residents staying in one position for too long. Better nursing protocols limits the number of pressure ulcers sustained by residents in a nursing home.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: A

In Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 3.04% of Patients had Serious Falls

This tells you the percentage of long-term care residents who sustained falls leading to severe injury. Falls can arise for a variety of reasons, but high rates of falls resulting in injuries may be an indication of poor nursing care.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B

In Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 2.1% of Patients had UTIs

This is the percentage of residents that have had a urinary tract infection. UTI's are considered by many in the nursing home industry to be an indicator of nursing care . UTI's are routinely the result of a nursing home with worse hygiene protocols. However, this statistic may also be misleading for certain facilities due to varying reporting standards for these infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: A-minus

In Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 11.59% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This figure is a measure of the percent of long-term care residents who are prescribed antipsychotic medication. Excessive reliance on these medications may suggest that a facility is using these medications to control patient behavior in scenarios where such drugs aren't medically indicated. Nevertheless, some nursing homes may need to rely on these medications due to having more patients with dementia.

Grade: A-minus

In Beacon Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, 13.3% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This datapoint tells you the percentage of long-term patients taking antianxiety drugs.

This metric measures the number of times residents are rehospitalized per thousand days of short-term patient care.
