In addition to being an elite facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in our inspections category, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes fared this well in this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received high marks in the area of short-term care. Consequently, it was given one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A+. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. This facility is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied roughly 1.5 times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage 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 facility in North Carolina in this area with 73.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this area. This place boasts a really impressive 6.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant portion was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
In our final category, this facility received another A+ for its long-term care score. This finalized an incredible profile of four A+'s. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. It does not look like this nursing home provided information about vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
