Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that area. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing grade is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This statistic is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Does this page answer your questions about Arbor Court?
Among this facility's worst category grades was an F for its inspection score. Typically, this indicates we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspections. When a place has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This generally suggests that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for several years.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home really did not perform very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated only 61.538464 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
