Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our short-term care scores are critical for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility also earned an A+ inspection grade, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home South Carolina in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the final area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for this category. This finalized a straight A profile. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
