Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its dominant achievements in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98.8764 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.7 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A- in our nursing category. Nursing grades are largely tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 2.9 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility New Jersey in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we assessed, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home wrapped up an elite profile. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in the country in this area with 59.6 percent of its patients returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this metric.
