Historical

We also found that this nursing home excelled at short-term care. We awarded them an elite grade of A+ in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is more often than not a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. Remarkably, this place provides roughly 1.5 times as many hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we looked at. This is often a great sign. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in North Carolina in this area with 69.2 percent of its patients returning home.

This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the place's recent inspection reports. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies.

The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

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. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provided 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is among the more impressive totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these figures. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in North Carolina in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

The final category we scored was long-term care, in which this facility was given a B. This actually is this nursing home's weakest area. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when their poorest score still is better than most nursing homes. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to offering very impressive levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 97.560974 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
