The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, we gave this facility a grade of A- in that category. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.164345 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place had 2.24 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.
Does this page answer your questions about Wurtland Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
This nursing home earned a very good nursing score as well. It earned one of our better grades in that category with an above average grade of F. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. To pair with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These scores hurt this facility's nursing grade significantly.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is short-term care, which ended up being this facility's worst category. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is clearly concerning. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 34.7 percent of its residents returning home.
