Best Nursing Home in Absecon, New Jersey Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping 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
Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B. With our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we analyzed is nursing, where this nursing home received a grade of B. This nursing home ended up being very solid across the board. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this category. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
