Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it earned an A+ in short-term care. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This place fared as well as just about any nursing home in Massachusetts in this metric with 67.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 5.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of care, this nursing home also fared well in several of the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place outpaced the national average. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided with better nursing care and having a policy of regularly moving residents to avoid bed sores.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that category, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the next area, this facility also performed admirably in our long-term care category. We awarded it an A- in that category. This topped off truly elite profile. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. On top of really impressive nursing hour statistics, this facility's vaccination data was top notch as well. In fact, it vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.45 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
