Historical

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility also earned an A+ inspection grade. This is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received an elite grade of A in our long-term care category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 97.67442 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Historical

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. There are a variety of datapoints included in this grade. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 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 facility Massachusetts in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a patient more frequently.

The last category we scored is short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B. Believe it or not, this is this facility's weakest category. A nursing home could be doing a lot worse when their lowest grade still is superior to most nursing homes. In the area of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
