We also wanted to point out that this nursing home has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an A+ in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government 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.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded an A+ short-term care grade, rendering it one of the few facilities to be given multiple A+ category grades. Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This facility is markedly above average in terms of its quantity of both physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients. The facility provided about 1.5 times as much care per resident from both of these care providers than the typical nursing home provided. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Pennsylvania in this area with 58.9 percent of its residents returning home.
Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This place provided 5.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is among the higher figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. We were very impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering high levels of care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, this facility also performed well in the long-term care category. We gave it a grade of A in that area. This topped off a straight A profile. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
