Staffing- Countryside received four stars (above average) for staffing. However, when I look at this staffing it appears to be just average. If you see, the licensed staff (RNs and LPNs) is actually lower than the state average. On the other hand, the CNA hours are much higher. In my opinion, this is more important than licensed staff levels. CNAs provide more than 75% of all hands on care in nursing homes. So, while Countryside technically is more average in staffing, they should have enough to provide good care.

Quality Measures- Countryside Manor got four stars (above average) for Quality Measures. Quality Measures shows how the residents are doing at this nursing home. The only troublesome indicator is the number of residents who are incontinent. At Countryside, 74.4% are incontinent while the state average is 53%. Sometimes nursing home will claim that residents are incontinent and then put diapers on them because it is easier than getting them up. Usually, this happens at facilities with low CNA staffing levels. Countryside has good staffing, so it is possible this nursing home simply has a lot of residents who can't control their bowel and bladder. However, this is still a very high number and should be watched. Residents who can tell staff when they need to go shouldn't have diapers unless they have mobility problems.

Inspections- Countryside Manor received three stars (average) for inspections. They received 5 deficiencies during the last state inspection. The average nursing home in North Carolina only gets 3.2 deficiencies. During the last inspection the state found that a resident was left in the shower and not toileted properly. You can see a full copy of the state report here. If you look above at the incontinence issue that I noted, it gives me some greater concerns about staff.

Overall- Overall Countryside Manor should be a good nursing home. With four stars it is above average, and their CNA staffing levels are very good. So, most likely the issues that they had with the last few inspections would not be typical of this home.
