Terrebonne General Med Center Snf is a very-small hospital-based facility located in Houma, Louisiana. It looks like this nursing home is ranked among the best nursing homes we found. Being awarded an A+ in our rating system requires first-rate scores across the board. We were not surprised to discover that this proved to be the highest rated nursing home in the city. One of the major highlights of this facility's stellar report card is its inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.

Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. We were not able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given an A+ short-term care grade, making it one of the few facilities to be awarded multiple A+ category grades. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. This facility fared much better in the final metric we assessed in this category, which was the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Louisiana in this metric with 83.6 percent of its residents returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term patients ever return home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning the page to our third area, we awarded this nursing home a score of A- for its long-term care score. This is a first-rate score. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. It does not look like this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In our final category, this facility also received an excellent nursing grade, with a B+. This topped off a very favorable report card. The nursing score includes several data points, but the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 place Louisiana in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning residents at least once a day.
