Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a first-rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled at short-term care, where it received an elite grade of A+. Few facilities fared better in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Remarkably, this place provides approximately one and a half times as many hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most facilities we assessed. This is a great sign. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Pennsylvania in this area with 69.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. There are numerous datapoints included in this area. Many of these datapoints reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided 7.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the higher figures we found. Furthermore, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in Pennsylvania in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth area we graded was long-term care. This incredible facility also excelled in this area, in which we gave it an A+. This completed a amazing report card of straight A+'s. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information about vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
