One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it received an impressive inspection grade. Inspections turned out to be its best category. In that category, we gave this facility an A-. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

This nursing home truly excelled in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. In computing our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists.

With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Pennsylvania in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D in long-term care, making this its worst category grade. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid figure. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
