Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. 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

Contributing to its first-rate assessment, this facility also received a strong short-term care score, with a score of A. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Remarkably, this facility provides roughly 50% more hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we assessed. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in New York in this area with 59.8 percent of its residents returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 5.8 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the better totals we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering impressive levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering falls leading to serious injury, this place performed as well as any nursing home the country.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the final category we scored, this nursing home received an impressive grade grade of B+ in our long-term care category. With this score, the nursing home rounded out a very impressive profile. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to offering very favorable levels of nursing care, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.14815 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
