Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we didn't have any positive things to say about this facility's overall grade or its category grades. Its best category was the area of short-term care. Nevertheless, with just a D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this area. Sadly, this wound up being one of its better features. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 71.07232 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Bostick Nursing Center?
This facility received really weak inspections in recent years, causing us to give them a lowly F for inspections. An F in this category is typically a signal that we found some red flags on the facility's government inspections. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility had 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
The final area we looked at was nursing. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a poor grade. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses are with patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
