Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

We also wanted to emphasize that this facility has received near flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 8.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is among the more impressive figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by these figures. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also fared well in some of the quality measures we looked at. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility outpaced the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its strong assessment, this facility also was given an excellent short-term care grade, with a grade of A. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This nursing home is above the national average in terms of both its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in North Carolina in this area with 56.4 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

In our final category, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for its long-term care rating. This topped off an elite profile. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the well above average volume of care provided by aids and other staff at this facility, we also were impressed by the facility's vaccination record. By way of example, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.86363 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. This combination proved to be effective as this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
