Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it received an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. When we looked at this facility's physical therapist hours, we found it offered more hours of physical therapy per day to its residents than most nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in North Carolina in this area with 56.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. Facilities that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility vaccinated a relatively low 90.71038 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this place was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 2.34 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was not bad due to it having more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded is nursing. It received an F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. Nursing scores are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. In addition to ranking below average in nursing hours per resident, this facility also had poor scores in the quality-based metrics we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This nursing home was at about 150 percent of the national average in both of these data points. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These scores helped pull down this nursing home's nursing rating quite a bit.
