Short-term Care Quality
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ in short-term care. This is as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This facility excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is an excellent sign. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in New Jersey in this area with 71.5 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. There are several factors within this grade. Many of the factors relate to staffing levels. This facility provides an incredible 8.1 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in the nation in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, this facility also was awarded an A+ long-term care rating, making it one of the few of nursing homes to earn four A+'s. For residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. It doesn't look like this facility provided vaccination data. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
