Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a strong facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A+. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied about 1.5 times as many registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Kentucky in this area with 73.9 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. This nursing home provides an incredible 7.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in Kentucky in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
This facility also had a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our top grades in that category with an A+. Inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last category, this facility was given another A+ for its long-term care rating, wrapping up an amazing profile of A+'s in all of our categories. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
