St Francis Center for Rehabilitation & Healthcare is a very-large nursing home located in Darby, Pennsylvania. It looks like this facility is a subpar facility. A grade in this range indicates we found some red flags. This isn't the worse place we graded, however, we would still be very reluctant to recommend it. If you aren't deterred by this nursing home's profile, feel free to continue reading to learn more about its category grades. We discuss nursing in the next paragraph.

Historical

While we were down on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our nursing rating. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This nursing home offers high levels of nursing care, averaging 4 hours per resident daily. This is more nursing care than most nursing homes provide. Lastly, this place also fared even better in most of the quality measures we looked at. It had a low rate of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

Shockingly, this facility actually received a good grade in the area of inspections as well. We awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Not many facilities that were this poor overall earned multiple category grades of this caliber. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Historical

This nursing home's next best area was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. With our long-term care assessment, we focus more on the sheer volume of services offered by a nursing home, along with a series of quality measures. This facility's vaccination data weren't as favorable as its nursing hours data. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 82.0442 percent of its patients. We would love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Although it had 2.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was more favorable.

Historical

The final category we assessed is short-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most critical for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the staffing figures we considered. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 29.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
