Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. This facility is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. It offered roughly one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Pennsylvania in this area with 57.8 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
This nursing home also received a virtually flawless inspection. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. This is one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some 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.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given an A+ for its long-term care score. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were not able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In our final area, this facility also was awarded an impressive nursing rating, with a grade of A. This wrapped up an elite profile. Our nursing grade weighs a number of data points. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home boasts a really impressive 6 hours of nursing care per resident daily, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the nation when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
