Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility was given a favorable short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category with a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Pennsylvania in this area with 57.1 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this area. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.65471 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.26 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored is nursing. We gave this facility one of our higher grades in this category, with a grade of B. This facility turned out to be strong in each category we looked at. Our nursing rating focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility excelled in these areas, with excellent scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.
