Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the category of long-term care. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a score of B+. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the senior population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Diversicare of Eupora?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. There are quite a few factors within this grade. Most of these factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
