Registered Staff Hours
Even though this facility's overall grade was rock bottom, it actually didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a C for that area. Nursing scores are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable score is long-term care, but it nevertheless earned a grade of just D in that category. This is still a relatively poor grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 74.45483 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about The Springs of Batesville?
This nursing home did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, it only received a grade of D for its inspection grade. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had multiple deficiencies in categories J through L, which represent the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors uncovered deficiencies which place resident safety or health in imminent jeopardy. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This generally means that a facility's bad performance spanned several years.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is a poor grade. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
