Short-term Care Quality
Although we didn't have many favorable things to say about this place's overall grade, it did receive a respectable short-term care score of B-. This boosted its overall profile to some extent. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Diversicare of Providence?
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. The nursing grade analyzes quite a few subcategories, however, the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
The final area we looked at is inspections. Inspection scores are based on a facility's recent government inspections. This nursing home received a C in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates it dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
