Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. Our inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home was given its next highest category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a respectable score. Our long-term care grade focuses on a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 61.651917 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating. This is well below average in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our final category, this nursing home did not fare well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. Our nursing score weighs a handful of subcategories, however, the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Grade: B-plus

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

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: C

In Beechtree Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing, 8.8 Percentage of Patients
