Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Even though we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to note its relatively favorable long-term care rating this year. We gave it a grade of B in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 82.07283 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this facility actually earned a good grade in inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Not many nursing homes that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Nursing scores are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the last area we assessed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a D. Short-term care ratings are critical for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Grade: F

In Arden House, 74.33% Percentage of Resident

This datapoint measures the percentage of short-term stay residents that saw functional improvements, such as enhanced ability to perform activities of daily living. Some experts would argue that this is a measure of a facility's rehabilitation performance.
