Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Pennsylvania in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The next category we analyzed was short-term care. Adding to its first-rate profile, this facility also performed well in that category. In fact, we gave it a grade of of A for the category. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In our last category, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for its long-term care rating. This wrapped up a very strong profile. Facilities that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.02913 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
