Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home performed even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the nursing home's recent government inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for this category, which is one of our highest grades. Inspection ratings weigh 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 scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. 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 last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This place performed as well as just about any nursing home in Pennsylvania in this area with 59.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, less than half of their short-term residents ever return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it received a score of B+. It performed better than most nursing homes in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.1291 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. This nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we scored is nursing, where this nursing home was given a B-. This was this nursing home's worst category. This is nevertheless not a terrible score. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also considered some quality-based metrics. This facility scored well in a few of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In terms of the percentage of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average.
