Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall grade. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors 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 with this deficiency, this place still received a relatively positive inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its better category scores. Our short-term care scores are critical for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
Does this page answer your questions about Brownfield Rehabilitation and Care Center?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. The nursing grade features a host of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 95 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
