Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 4.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Finally, this facility also excelled in several quality measures we assessed. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility New Jersey in this category.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The next category we assessed is long-term care. Adding to its first-rate resume, this nursing home also performed well in that area. In fact, it received a of A in that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 95.798325 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.34 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we graded is short-term care. This nursing home received an impressive short-term care rating in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Although this isn't as elite as several of its other grades, this remains a decent score in that category. Our short-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 42.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients return home so this facility is below average.
