Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall performance, we awarded this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in our long-term care category. As a result, we gave it a score of A- for that category, which happens to be one of our higher grades. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 64.825584 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Mystic Meadows Rehab & Nursing Center?
This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Our next category is short-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in that category. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
