Historical

On top of being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. There are several factors included in this category. Many of the subcategories reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 7 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care being provided.

Historical

Another reason we rated this nursing home so favorably is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is just about as dominant as it gets in this area. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This facility provides more services with registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we looked at. This is typically a great sign. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Kentucky in this area with 66.6 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Historical

This facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Historical

In our last category, this nursing home was given another A+ for its long-term care grade. This completed a remarkable profile of straight A+'s. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. After assessing the impressive nursing hours provided by this nursing home, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
