Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall grade, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in this category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given positive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more impressive scores in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's second best score. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Arlington Place Health Campus?
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D for our long-term care category. This is the facility's least impressive category score. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.09375 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
