While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable grades in that category with a grade of B+. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most respectable category was long-term care, but it still received a grade of just D in that category. This still happens to be a relatively poor grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility administered the vaccine to only 88.38527 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.81 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Belleview Valley Nursing Home?
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing rating includes many datapoints. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place was above average in two of the areas we considered, with solid marks for avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable measures of the quality of nursing care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this facility did not fare well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
