Located in Glenside, Pennsylvania, Wyndmoor Hills Health Care & Rehab Center is one of four nursing homes in this city. We awarded this nursing home an overall grade of C. A grade in this range requires some solid marks. This place seems to have some things working in its favor. Lastly, this nursing home's ownership changed in the last year, so we will need to monitor it to confirm it maintains respectable levels of care.

Please note our records indicate that Wyndmoor Hills Health Care & Rehab Center has changed ownership recently and while our data on this page is up-to-date there is a chance that the quality of this facility may change under new management.

Historical

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave it a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Pennsylvania in this area with 57.3 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, less than half of their short-term patients are able to return home.

Historical

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This particular nursing home provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as good indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

The final category we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is clearly very concerning. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 11.718749 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility wasn't as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 2.64 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad since it had some more complex patients.
