Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Long-term care grades are typically used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.98851 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place was able to keep 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 figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Singing River Health and Rehabilitation Center?
This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. In calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home really didn't perform well here either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care scores are likely more critical for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
