In fact, it received one of our best grades in that category with an A-. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing grades are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

The next area we graded was long-term care. This nursing home's received an abysmal long-term care score where it received an F.

In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this facility's overall grade quite a bit. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received a substantiated complaint in the last few years. There seem to be no shortage of reasons to pass on this facility.
