These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without information regarding deficiencies for this nursing home, it was difficult to assess it in this area.

We also gave this nursing home a solid grade in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure.

Does this page answer your questions about Grand Cove Nursing & Rehabilitation Center?
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its patients returning home.
