Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than its overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is definitely a great sign for this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this facility a grade of B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher scores. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that 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 62.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we looked at is long-term care, where this facility received a grade of C in this area. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 98.83382 percent of its patients, which is an above average total. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.07 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most facilities due to it having more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we looked at was nursing. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is clearly a significant concern. The nursing grade includes many data points, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. This place also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were disappointed. This nursing home was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this metric. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this facility's nursing grade quite a bit.
