Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we wanted to note its excellent short-term care grade. We awarded them an A- in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing scores are primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. 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 nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Massachusetts in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third area we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home received an above average long-term care score, with a grade of B in the area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.661865 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

In the last area we looked at, we found that this nursing home received a solid government inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from government inspectors. It received a decent grade in our inspection category with a B. This nursing home really didn't have any major weaknesses. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.
