Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility earned near flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A+ in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. We were not able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its top-shelf profile, this facility also was awarded an excellent short-term care score, with a score of A. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing score is based on quite a few datapoints, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Kentucky in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care category. We gave it a B+ in this area. This rounded out a first-rate report card. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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 figure.
