Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the category of long-term care, where it received a B-. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care instead of the skilled nursing or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 83.06878 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area was short-term care, which is the last category we scored. In this area, we gave this facility a D. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. It appears that this facility was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

In Briar Hill Rest Home, 3.13% of Patients had UTIs

This figure tells you the percentage of long-term patients which have had a UTI. Although more infections could reflect poorly on a nursing home's nursing care, it can be problematic to compare between facilities due to facilities having varying reporting standards.

In Briar Hill Rest Home, 20.09% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication
