Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. The nursing score analyzes quite a few datapoints, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents more often.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 67.89474 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Diversicare of Chanute?
This facility received mediocre inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories J through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to place resident safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's weakest area was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this facility offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. The last item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
