Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home earned an elite short-term care grade. We gave this nursing home an A- in this category, which really helped its overall grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also received a favorable long-term care score. In fact, we gave them a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.7591 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Diversicare of Foley?
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. The nursing grade analyzes quite a few components, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
The last category we assessed is inspections. This facility did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this nursing home's overall grade significantly. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
