Historical

In addition to earning a great overall score, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care score, with an impressive grade of A. Short-term care grades are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. This facility fared much better in the final metric we looked at in this category, which was the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in South Carolina with 64.8 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of the short-stay patients ever return home.

In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids.

This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
