Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B+. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 12 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its next most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is a decent score. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most important for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Medilodge of Grand Blanc?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care, which is this facility's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.090904 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
