Historical

Contributing to its top-shelf resume, this facility also received a strong short-term care grade, with a score of A-. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It fared as well as just about any facility in New York in this area with 60.9 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

This facility also received an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of providing well above average levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.80478 percent of its patients. This statistic is also significantly better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

The final area we graded was this facility's worst category. However, even its worst category would likely be a strength for many facilities. We gave it a strong grade of B for nursing. There are a variety of factors included in this grade. Many of the criteria reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the highest figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by these statistics. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality measures we looked at. With less than 5 percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Many pressure ulcers can be avoided by offering better nursing care and having a policy of turning patients at least once a day.
