Historical

We also found that this nursing home excelled at short-term care. We gave them an elite grade of A+ in this area. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home provided more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in New Jersey in this area with 64.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Adding to its impressive category grades, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Compounding its fine resume, this facility also received a superb long-term care grade, with a grade of A-. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.35 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Historical

The final category we graded was nursing. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of B-. This was this nursing home's worst category. In determining our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This particular facility provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is quite a bit below average. However, more than one fourth of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours heavily in determining our scores. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in some quality-focused metrics. We look at the percentage of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. These data points are measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these issues.
