Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this nursing home earned near flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an A+ in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its elite resume, this nursing home also performed well in our long-term care area. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in the category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.65636 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Turning the page to our next area, we gave this facility a score of A for its short-term care score. This is a very impressive score. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the final area, we gave this facility an A+ for our nursing rating. This wrapped up a very favorable profile. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility New Jersey in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents even once per day.
