Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a score of A- for our short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are critical for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Does this page answer your questions about Wingate at Beacon?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. In computing our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded was long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category. Our long-term care ratings are pivotal for patients seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 58.84354 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
