Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this place also performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Not many nursing homes performed better in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, it does not look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also was awarded a very impressive long-term care grade. This actually is its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 99.13295 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given an impressive short-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last area we rated is nursing. This facility was given an impressive nursing grade in our assessment, with a B. Although this was not as impressive as some of its other category grades, this is nevertheless one of the stronger grades in this category. The nursing grade consists of many subcategories, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 place Rhode Island in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient more often.
