Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Franklin Oaks Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. We assessed the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this area. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.
