One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. We weren't able to find information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides approximately 50% more hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is often a very favorable sign. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Massachusetts in this area with 66.6 percent of its residents returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was superb in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of A. Not many nursing homes fared better in this category. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. It does not appear that this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home also excelled in the nursing category. In fact, we awarded it an A for this category. This completed truly elite report card. There are numerous subcategories included in this area. Most of the data points are tied to nurse staffing. This place boasts a really impressive 4.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to providing high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in Massachusetts when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care being provided.
