Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility earned an A+ inspection rating. This score is based on its recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to note the fact that this nursing home was superb in our short-term care category. We gave them a dominant grade of A+ in this category. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This facility excelled in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average facility. The last item we looked at in this category is the number 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 Kentucky in this area with 73.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its fine resume, this facility also was given a strong long-term care grade, with a score of A. For residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Moving on to our last area, this facility also performed admirably in the nursing category. In fact, we awarded it an A in this area. This topped off a straight A report card. Our nursing grade analyzes a handful of data points, but the main one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the higher totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by these statistics. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in Kentucky in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these areas as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered.
