Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This place excelled at the highest level in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided about 50% more care from registered nurses and physical therapists than a typical nursing home. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Pennsylvania in this area with 69.7 percent of its residents returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
Adding to its impressive category scores, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Contributing to its first-rate assessment, this nursing home also was given an excellent long-term care grade, with a score of A. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. It does not look like this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was given an excellent nursing rating. We gave it an A- in that area, rounding out a straight A profile. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in the state in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We look at these areas as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care offered.
