Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category is its long-term care score, where it received a B-. In the category of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 76.86747 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most facilities since it had some more complicated patients.
Does this page answer your questions about Brooklyn United Methodist Church Home?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. The nursing score consists of a handful of subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place averages just 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Although this nursing home ranked poorly in terms of the quantity of nursing care provided, it actually performed admirably in a few of our quality-based metrics. It was above average in two of the major metrics we look at, with favorable scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category is short-term care, which is the final area we looked at. We gave it an F for this category. Even with a few respectable grades in other categories, this score is still alarming so we would like to to draw your attention to it. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't shocked to discover this facility provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 29.3 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
