Facility Inspections

A+

To go along with a strong overall grade, we awarded this place an A+ for our inspection category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few components, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

A

This facility also was superb in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of A. Not many facilities fared better in this area. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This ended up being more of a strength for this nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Rhode Island with 65.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

B

The final area we graded is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility an above average grade of B. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.87234 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. This nursing home was also able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 3 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than most nursing homes due to it having some more complicated patients.
