Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its second most favorable category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Brickyard Healthcare - Richmond Care Center?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 66.853935 percent of its patients. This is multiple points lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
