Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being an elite nursing home overall, this facility performed well in our inspections category, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed this well in this area. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't appear that we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without all of the information regarding deficiencies, it is challenging to fully grade the place in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A-. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Mississippi in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given a strong long-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher grades in that area with a score of B+. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.39024 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we scored is short-term care. We awarded this facility one of our better grades in this category, with a B. While this isn't as favorable as many of this facility's other scores, it is still a positive grade. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is more often than not a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
