Registered Staff Hours
This facility's overall grade was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a strong score in this area, with a B+. This is a much better score than the nursing home's overall score. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care score ended up being one of its higher scores. The facility received a B- in this category. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to just 44.81132 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Lindley Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few subcategories, but the main one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This 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 looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
Our final area is short-term care, in which we gave this facility a grade of C in that category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
