As a matter of fact, it turned out to be one of the top three facilities in the city.

Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
In addition to being a strong nursing home overall, it also earned A+ inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly perfect. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care score. With our short-term care category, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This place provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is an excellent sign. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in New York in this area with 68.2 percent of its patients returning home. With most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a favorable long-term care grade, with a B+ in the area. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The next category we analyzed is nursing, which ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. However, we would not assess this facility based solely on this area, since it had multiple excellent grades in other categories. The nursing score is based on a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 1.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
