Please note our records indicate that Deer Park Health & Rehabilitation has changed ownership recently and while our data on this page is up-to-date there is a chance that the quality of this facility may change under new management.

Deer Park Health & Rehabilitation is the lone option we identified in Nebo, North Carolina. With a rock bottom overall grade of F, this facility isn't high on our list. This facility didn't have any redeeming qualities. Finally, this facility had an ownership change in the last year, so hopefully its performance improves in the coming year.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which ended up being one of its more favorable category scores. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 85.756676 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. The nursing score considers several subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is short-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Deer Park Health & Rehabilitation Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B-minus

In Deer Park Health & Rehabilitation, 3.86% of Patients had Serious Falls

Excessive reliance on these medications may mean that a facility is using these drugs to control patient behavior in scenarios where such medications aren't medically required. Nevertheless, some facilities may need to rely more on these drugs due to an increased number of patients suffering from Alzheimer's or other dementias.
