Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't fare poorly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C in that area, which wound up being another one of its more respectable scores. In calculating these long-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's personal care services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 80.37826 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit less than the national average. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Brickyard Healthcare - Bloomington Care Center?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in nursing. We awarded it a grade of D for that category, which is one of our highest scores. In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, we gave this nursing home a D in short-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category score. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't surprised to learn this facility was below average in multiple staffing areas we assess. In fact, it provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
