Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall score was not a highlight, it did receive a very good grade in the area of inspections. We gave it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In our short-term care rating, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
Does this page answer your questions about Bennett Hills Rehabilitation and Care Center?
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. When computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
