Best Nursing Home in Kearney, Nebraska Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. Nursing ratings are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its second highest category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care scores are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest category turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. With our long-term care grade, we weigh the volume of care offered by a nursing home, as well as a series of qualitative statistics. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning our last area of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this area. When a facility has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
