Short-term Care Quality
In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility also received an A+ in short-term care. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per resident from both of these care providers than the average facility provided. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The final metric we looked at in this category 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 South Carolina in this area with 69.8 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+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Our nursing rating is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 6.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the nation in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a fine long-term care score. This actually is its third best category grade. In that area, this facility received a score of A. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were not able to locate this place's vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Another impressive feature for this nursing home is its inspection grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A, wrapping up its straight A performance. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
