Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection grade exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. The nursing rating is based on a host of datapoints. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for those needing more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 57.915833 percent of its patients. This is many points less than average. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we graded was short-term care, which is a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D in our short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we weren't surprised to learn this place was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we assess. It supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B-minus

In Brandywine Hall, 3.42% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is a measure of the percent of long-term stay residents who experienced a fall which resulted in serious injury. Falls can happen for a variety of reasons, but high rates of falls resulting in injuries could be an indication of lower levels of patient supervision.

Grade: B-minus

In Brandywine Hall, 15.49% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication
