We also wanted to emphasize that this nursing home has received near flawless government inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Contributing to its top-shelf profile, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a score of A for that area. Short-term care scores are vital for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. This nursing home performed much better in the final metric we considered in this area, which was the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. This place performed as well as just about any facility in Pennsylvania in this area with 66.6 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, less than half of the short-stay patients are able to return home.

Additionally, this nursing home also received favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 56.737587 percent of its patients. This is a few points lower than we anticipated. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

The last area we analyzed was nursing, in which this nursing home was given a grade of B. Although this ended up being its least impressive category rating, this is still a good grade. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
