Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

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. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also was awarded a fine short-term care grade. This actually ended up being this nursing home's second most impressive category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we gave them one of our better scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 84.43432 percent of its patients. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final area we rated is nursing, in which this nursing home received a B. Believe it or not, this proved to be this facility's least impressive category. A nursing home is doing something right when it's worst score still rates higher than most other facilities. Nursing scores are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 0 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 New York in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents more frequently.
