Long-term Care Quality
Even though we were not complementary of this facility's overall score, it actually received an impressive long-term care grade this year. We gave it a B in this category. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 78.69416 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. Short-term care grades are generally used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Woodmont Center?
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Lastly, this nursing home received a C. Inspection grades relate to a facility's inspections. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we do need to point out that this nursing home has been assessed some government fines in recent years. We were relieved to find that these were not on the high end as government fines go. That said, this still isn't what we hoped to find.
