Registered Staff Hours
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government 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 relatively minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more meaningful for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Windermere Health and Rehabilitation Center?
Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing rating is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a C. Although this is its least impressive category rating, this is still a middle of the pack score. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 77.07006 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
