Historical

On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also wanted to note the fact that this nursing home excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an elite grade of A+ in this area. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This facility is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. The facility supplied about one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in New York in this area with 58.9 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. The nursing score features a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provided 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by both of these figures. On top of offering high levels of care, this facility also performed well in several of the quality measures we assessed. For example, in terms of the percentage of its patients suffering falls resulting in major injury, this facility performed as well as any facility the nation. Preventing major falls is generally an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are employed.

Historical

In the last category we looked at, this facility was awarded an impressive grade grade of A in our long-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home completed a straight A report card. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Although we determined this facility had an impressive amount of nursing care provided by nurses aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccination rate to be a bit lower than we expected. It administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 77.77778 percent of its residents. This is one statistic we would love to see this nursing home improve. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.36 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.
