Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize that this facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

An additional reason we assessed this nursing home so favorably is that it was awarded an A+ short-term care score. This is simply as strong as it gets in this area. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by providing more care from registered nurses than the average facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in Pennsylvania in this area with 70.3 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. The nursing grade analyzes several datapoints, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Approximately one quarter of that care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. Both of these statistics beat out the national average. Finally, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home Pennsylvania when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these metrics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The last area we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A-. This completed a very impressive profile. Few nursing homes earned an A- or better in in each area we assessed. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
