Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 58.02469 percent of its residents. This is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third best area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a C. In computing these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we analyzed is nursing, which is this nursing home's worst category. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is certainly a major concern. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

This tells you the percentage of patients who suffered from a urinary tract infection. UTI's are routinely linked to poor nursing care.

This is the percent of patients who were given antipsychotic medications.

This datapoint is a measure of the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term care. Staying out of the hospital during rehabilitation is critical to restoring the physical well-being of patients.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: B-minus

In Arlington Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, 11.48 Percentage of Patients

This is a measure of the number of times residents are sent to the emergency room per thousand days of short-term patient care. Avoiding medical emergencies is one way to gauge patient care during rehabilitation.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: F

In Arlington Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, 72.53% Percentage of Resident

This datapoint is a measure of the percent of short-term residents who saw functional improvements, such as with activities of daily living. Some would argue this is a reasonable measure of rehabilitation performance.
