Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care score, which is not too bad of a score. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Lakeland Nursing & Rehabilitation?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Inspection ratings weigh many items found on the facility's inspection reports. When you find too many deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 22 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our next area, we awarded this facility a grade of D in short-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category grade. Short-term care scores are critical for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
