Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B+ for our inspections category. This is the result of the nursing home receiving a quality inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care rating, which really isn't a bad grade. Short-term care grades are typically used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in this area with 54.4 percent of its patients returning home. This is a higher rate than most facilities.
Does this page answer your questions about The Laurels of Willow Creek?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. We looked at the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This place averaged only 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. This facility also had terrible scores in several of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. For starters, we looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at more than double the national average in this metric.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal score in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 69.89247 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.18 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
