Long-term Care Quality
This facility performed well in long-term care, with an impressive grade of A in this area. This really propped up its overall grade quite a bit. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 95.59902 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. We weren't able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Heritage Manor of Ville Platte?
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. The nursing rating consists of a handful of datapoints, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's worst area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is certainly very concerning. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
