Historical

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. Our short-term care grade is generally used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final measure we looked at in this area 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 nursing home in Kentucky in this area with 70.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

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. Nursing scores are largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provides an incredible 7.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Very few nursing homes provide this quantity of nursing care to their patients. Out of that 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 providing impressive levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering falls resulting in major injury, this facility performed as well as any facility the state.

Historical

Continuing with its amazing performance, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection rating. This is based on its recent government inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the highest complements we can pay to a nursing home. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. 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.

Historical

In our final area, this nursing home also was given an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. This finished off a first-rate report card. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the factors we considered after this nursing home's above average nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for seniors. This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
