Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's other accomplishments is its high-end short-term care grade. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of A-. With our short-term care score, we seek to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Bethany Home?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this statistic. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more often.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is long-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in this area. Naturally, this score hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.17355 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
