On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an A+ short-term care grade. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. 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. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes with 70.7 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. There are a host of subcategories within this area. Most of the subcategories reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 5.7 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing impressive levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the state in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The third area we assessed was long-term care. This facility also was given an A+ long-term care grade, rendering it one of the few nursing homes to be given more than one A+ category scores. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

Turning to our inspection category, this facility also excelled in this area, where it received yet another A+. This made it one of the only nursing homes in New York to receive A+'s across the board. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this nursing home had some 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.
