Short-term Care Quality
Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care score this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we can find for this facility. With our short-term care score, we try to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a substantially greater volume of physical therapist hours than the typical nursing home. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was above average in this metric with 55.4 percent of its patients returning home.
As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's rock bottom overall grade. In fact, it earned a C in this category. Inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility had 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Does this page answer your questions about Rosewood Rehabilitation and Nursing Center?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This facility averaged only 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. On top of being below average in nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also had poor marks in the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This place was at about 150 percent of the national average in both of these datapoints. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These statistics helped pull down this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this facility did not perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 64.97462 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.09 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
