Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B+ in nursing. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more meaningful for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents 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 actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Franklin Healthcare of Peabody?
This facility received an F for its inspection grade. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we want to point out that this facility was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This generally suggests that a facility's poor track record spanned several years.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was long-term care, where this facility was given a bottom of the barrel score in this category as well. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 70.481926 percent of its residents. This is pretty significantly lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
