Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A for our short-term care score. This is much more impressive than its overall grade. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received a great nursing grade. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area.

Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning the last category of inspections, this facility really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This pulled this facility's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home was assessed one deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it was not in one of the categories that suggest that it created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we would like to point out that this place was assessed large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This typically means that a poor performance spanned more than one year.
