Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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

Contributing to its superb profile, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a score of A in the category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.72727 percent of its patients. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was awarded a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home received a strong nursing grade. Although this wasn't quite as good as several of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive scores we offer. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Massachusetts 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 system of moving residents at least once a day.
