Best Nursing Home in Beacon, New York Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for short-term care. Short-term care grades are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections. We awarded it a grade of A for that category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this area. In our long-term care score, we look at the volume of care offered by a nursing home, along with a handful of qualitative measures. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. We were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 62.97578 percent of its residents. Fortunately, 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.
