Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the category of long-term care, where it received a B-. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 90.196075 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Brynwood Health and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is short-term care, which was this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a D in that area. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Our short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provides fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
