Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. Our long-term care grades are important for people requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Burton Health Care Center?
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final category, we gave this facility a grade of D in the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
