Short-term Care Quality
On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received high marks in our short-term care category as well. As a result, it received our highest grade in that category with an A+. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more important for people needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. In fact, it provided about 50% more care per resident from both of these care providers than the average facility provided. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in New Jersey in this area with 68.6 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections proved to be one of its best categories. In that area, we gave this facility an A. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This was one of the higher totals we found. In addition, we found that a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of providing high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the country in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Nevertheless, you should not dwell on a single poor category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on vaccination rates. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
