Historical

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than the facility's overall score. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients 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 68.6 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay patients are able to return home.

Historical

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a C. With our long-term care assessment, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, as well as a series of quality metrics. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 81.76101 percent of its residents. This is several points below the national average. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.37 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Historical

The last area we looked at was nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed admirably in this area. Avoiding serious falls is usually an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be prevented if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
