Top Nursing Home in South Dakota Awards 2020
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This score is far better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is certainly an excellent sign for the quality of care at this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second most favorable category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Bennett County Hospital and Nursing Home?
Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. Nursing grades are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last area, this facility really did not perform well. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is its worst category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility provided the vaccine to only 71.01449 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
