Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's overall grade was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a strong score in that category, with a B. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Mississippi in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities third most favorable category was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. In our long-term care assessment, we focus more on the volume of care offered by a facility, as well as a few quality datapoints. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 89.96416 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. It received a lowly F in this category. In spite of a few decent grades in other categories, this score is still alarming so we would like to to point it out. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
