Does this page answer your questions about Pennypack Nursing and Rehabilitation Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but there's nothing wrong with a score in this range either. We analyzed the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is short-term care. We gave this facility a solid grade in that category, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as some of this facility's other scores, it is nevertheless nothing to be ashamed of. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
