Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This facility really fared well in long-term care. We gave it an impressive grade of A+ for that category. This saved its overall profile. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.70588 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing grade analyzes several components, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 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 place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a very poor score. This is clearly a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are likely more important for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

The Meadows Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A

In The Meadows, 7.79% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This tells you the percent of patients that suffered from a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers, which are also referred to as bed sores, are often the result of residents staying in one position for too long. Better nursing care limits the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain pressure ulcers.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: D

In The Meadows, 3.33% of Patients had Serious Falls

This indicates the percent of residents that suffered from a major fall. Falls resulting in severe injury are often the result of poor nursing care. More supervision limits the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain major falls.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: B

In The Meadows, 1.51% of Patients had UTIs

This figure tells you the percent of long-term patients that have suffered from a UTI. UTI's may be an indicator of a facility with lower levels of hygiene. Nevertheless, this statistic could be misleading for some facilities due to inconsistent reporting standards for urinary tract infections.

Grade: A-minus

In The Meadows, 11.48% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This figure gauges the percentage of long-term residents which are administered antipsychotic drugs. Excessive reliance on these medications may mean a nursing home is using these medications to control patient behavior in situations where such medications aren't medically required.

Grade: B

In The Meadows, 22.56% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This figure gauges the percent of long-term stay patients taking antianxiety drugs.

Managing Depression Among Residents

Grade: C

Grade: A-minus

In The Meadows, 94.64% of Patients

This is the percent of patients who received the flu and pneumonia vaccines. High vaccination rates should be standard at this point.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: D

This indicates the percent of patients that retained mobility levels over time. Optimizing mobility is usually a great sign for residents' well-being.

Hospitalizations

Grade: D

In The Meadows, 1.67 Hospitalizations per 1,000 resident days

This datapoint is a measure of the number of times residents are hospitalized per 1,000 days of patient care. Minimizing hospitalizations is important to preserving the physical health of nursing home residents.

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

Grade: B-plus

In The Meadows, 16.36 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

Measures the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term resident care.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: C

In The Meadows, 11.4 Percentage of Patients

This datapoint measures the number of emergency room visits per 1,000 days of short-term patient care. Staying out of the emergency room is one way to measure patient care during rehabilitation.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: D

In The Meadows, 66.86% Percentage of Resident

This metric measures the percent of short-term patients that experienced functional improvements, such as enhanced ability to perform activities of daily living. Many in the industry believe that this is a reasonable measure of a facility's rehabilitation services.
