Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall score was terrible, it fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to discover that this facility earned a solid long-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in that area. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Legacy Rehabilitation and Living?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. We awarded it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a poor score. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. With a score in this range in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. The facility provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.
