To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating.

Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of B- in this category is by no means a bad score. The nursing score considers several datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility boasts a really impressive 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient daily, of which a significant portion were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. This is one of the better totals of nursing hours we found at any facility in the Schenectady area. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home was above average in several of these datapoints, with good marks for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Historical

Turning to our next area, this facility was given a decent short-term care rating. While this wasn't as good as many of its other grades, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. Short-term care grades are often used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home is above the national average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 42.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.
