Historical

In addition to being an elite nursing home overall, this nursing home performed well in our inspections category, where it received a grade of A+. Few facilities fared as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Historical

This facility also was given a fine short-term care grade. Indeed, this is this nursing home's second most impressive category grade. In that area, this facility received a score of A. In computing our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This ended up being more of a strength for this nursing home. It performed as well as just about any facility in Pennsylvania with 60 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The final category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was awarded a grade of B-. While this ended up being its weakest category rating, this is nevertheless not the end of the world. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of nursing care. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.18033 percent of its patients, which is an above average statistic. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.25 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
