Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is it received an A+ in our inspections category. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given a dominant score of A in our short-term care area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we looked at. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in New Jersey in this area with 57.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third category we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care score, with a grade of B in this area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.66234 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening ailment for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final area we graded was nursing. This nursing home was awarded an impressive nursing score this year, with a grade of B. While this was not nearly as good as some of its other scores, this remains one of the stronger scores for this area. Our nursing grade analyzes quite a few data points, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
