Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's other achievements is its high-end long-term care score. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a score of A. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.53846 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Diversicare of Lanett?
This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing grade considers several subcategories. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this nursing home was given a respectable short-term care rating. Even though this was not as elite as a few of its other category grades, this is still not a terrible score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
