Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. The nursing score weighs many datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures 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
We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this nursing home earned a decent short-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in that category. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is considered to be a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Majestic Care of Battle Creek?

This nursing home was assessed a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by CMS had potential to cause actual harm to residents. We are also concerned by the fact that this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home received an abysmal grade here also. It received a lowly F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 95.26627 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
