Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was superb in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Not many facilities performed better in this category. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the number 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 South Carolina in this area with 68.4 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Few facilities received a better grade in this category. Facilities that do well in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.04878 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the last area, this nursing home received a strong nursing rating. We awarded it a grade of B+ in that category, completing one of our better profiles. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides an impressive 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we looked at in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.
