Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't fare poorly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which happens to be among its better grades. In calculating our long-term care scores, we assess the assistance with daily living received by the facility's residents. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Heritage Manor of Slidell?
We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the category of nursing. We gave it an D for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing ratings are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This number is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
