Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's personal care instead of the highly skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.044334 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Woodward Skilled Nursing & Therapy?
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 grade weighs several components, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be 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 provided.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home really didn't fare well. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is its poorest grade. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
