Historical

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really performed well in long-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.50549 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. The last datapoint we looked at was the facility's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.55 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

This facility fared well in our short-term care category. As a result, we awarded it a score of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our most impressive scores. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is often a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. This facility was satisfactory in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered a reasonable level of care from both physical therapists and registered nurses. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility 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 62.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

The last category we analyzed was nursing. In that category, we gave this facility a strong grade of B. When calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
