The goal is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes.

Our nursing score is largely associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 6.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Approximately one quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most skilled levels of nurses. Both are impressive figures, which typically leads to higher quality care. Finally, this facility also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its residents sustaining falls leading to major injury, this facility performed as well as just about any facility we assessed. Avoiding major falls is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable category was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for people in need of more conventional services related to personal care.

This facility provided the vaccine to 98.89197 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final category of inspections, this facility received an F here. This grade was detrimental to this facility's overall score. For places with bad inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed one deficiency on its inspection report. Fortunately, it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this place was assessed large government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This usually suggests that a nursing home's bad track record spanned several years.
