Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in that area. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.83544 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Does this page answer your questions about Cabell Health Care Center?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Our short-term care scores are likely more meaningful for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
