Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable long-term care score this year. We gave it a grade of B+ in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.85714 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care score turns out to be one of its respectable scores. The facility received a grade of C in this category. With our short-term care grade, we seek to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Stonerise Berkeley Springs?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Turning the last category of government inspections, we gave this nursing home a D for our inspection category. This proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We take a weak score in this category very seriously. Inspection ratings factor in many items on the facility's inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this nursing home also has received large government fines in recent years.
