Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade is not a highlight, it actually received a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that area, which is not bad. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest category was short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third highest area came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Long-term care grades are often used to grade a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.32886 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed was nursing, which proved to be a weak link for this facility. We gave this nursing home a D for the area of nursing. Our nursing rating weighs a handful of components, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

In Laurelwood Comm Living Center, 22.76% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

In Laurelwood Comm Living Center, 20.82 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

This tells you the number of rehospitalizations per thousand days of short-term patient care. There is generally a correlation between keeping patients out of the hospital and a nursing homes short-term rehabilitation performance.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: F

In Laurelwood Comm Living Center, 13.63 Percentage of Patients

This datapoint is a measure of the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term care. Avoiding medical emergencies is one way to gauge the well-being of patients during rehabilitation.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: B-plus

In Laurelwood Comm Living Center, 69.18% Percentage of Resident
