Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
We also wanted to point out that this facility earned an impressive grade of B in the area of nursing. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home New Jersey in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning patients more frequently.

Even with a few acceptable scores in other areas, this score is still disappointing so we wanted to point it out. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 85.563385 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is several points lower than the national average.
