Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we gave it a B+ for our inspections category. This is the result of the nursing home receiving a quality government inspection report this year. Inspection grades account for 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. You generally want to avoid facilities with too many deficiencies flagged. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's unfortunate short-term care grade where it received a lowly F. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Considering its abysmal rating in this category, we were not shocked to learn this facility offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
Does this page answer your questions about The Waters of Batesville?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this facility did not perform well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 20.967743 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
