Best Nursing Home in Absecon, New Jersey Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. 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.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care score. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.5086 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
The last area we scored turned out to be this facility's worst category. However, even in its worst category we still gave it an acceptable grade of C for nursing. There are a host of subcategories within this grade. Most of the factors reflect staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
