Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this nursing home received nearly flawless government inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have very 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this facility fared very well in our long-term care rating. We awarded them a dominant grade of A+ in this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After considering the very impressive nursing hours provided by this facility, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.7013 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be effective as this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.57 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to note the fact that this nursing home was given a top-shelf score of A in our short-term care category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is more often than not a reliable assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Massachusetts in this area with 66.3 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, less than half of their short-term residents ever return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In the last category we scored, this facility was given an impressive grade grade of A in our nursing category. With this grade, the nursing home topped off a straight A report card. When calculating our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided 5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the more impressive totals we found. Furthermore, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With below 5 percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category.
