Historical

This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. If it was not for this grade, this facility's overall score would have been much lower. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. This place excelled at the highest level in two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied about 50% more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than a typical nursing home. This is an encouraging sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country with 58.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. At least one quarter of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are skilled nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care. In calculating our grades, we apply additional weight to care provided by registered nurses. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Pennsylvania in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a resident at least once a day.

Historical

We also wanted to point out this place's inspection rating where it received a lowly F. For facilities with bad inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 9 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Historical

The next area we assessed is long-term care, which is this nursing home's worst area. It received an F in this category, which is certainly a major concern. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this facility administered the vaccine to only 80 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
