Historical

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place boasts a really impressive 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the better totals of nursing hours we found. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as good indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.

Historical

This nursing home was given high marks in the category of short-term care. For this reason, it received one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A+. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more critical for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This place excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical facility. The final metric 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 Tennessee in this area with 65.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its 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. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Historical

In the last category we assessed, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this grade, the facility rounded out a very impressive report card. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to offering very impressive levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. This combination proved to be effective as this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
