Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

This facility was given impressive grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, we gave it one of our most favorable grades in that category with a score of A-. In our short-term care assessment, we try to forge a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. This nursing home performed much better in the final metric we assessed in this area, which was the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It fared as well as just about any facility in New Jersey in this metric with 57.8 percent of its patients returning home.

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. Nursing grades are primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The last category we assessed is long-term care. In this area, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.409454 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, we looked at the facility's number of hospitalizations. With 1.76 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home was close to average in this area.
