Facility Inspections

Grade: A

With an overall grade this high, it should come as no surprise that this nursing home excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its fine resume, this nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score, with a grade of A-. In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 facility New Jersey in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated is long-term care. We awarded this facility an acceptable grade in this area, with a B-. Even though this wasn't as dominant as several of its other grades, it is still not a major area of concern. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
