Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This place had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually ended up being its next best category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated a relatively low 74.31506 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are presumably most critical for those in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is nursing. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. The nursing rating includes a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This statistic is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Arrowhead Health and Rehab Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: D

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 10.37% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: A

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 3.17% of Patients had Serious Falls

This indicates the percent of residents that sustained a urinary tract infection. UTI's are considered by many experts to be an indicator of the quality of nursing care . UTI's are routinely associated with poor nursing care. Nevertheless, this metric can be misleading for some facilities due to varying reporting standards for UTI's.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: B-minus

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 18.14% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This tells you the percent of long-term patients that are prescribed antipsychotic drugs. Excessive reliance on these medications may mean a nursing home is using these medications to control patient behavior in situations where such drugs are not medically required. Nevertheless, some facilities may need to rely more on these drugs due to an increased number of residents suffering from cognitive disorders.

Grade: A

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 21.34% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This is the percent of patients prescribed antianxiety medications. These drugs are typically prescribed to residents suffering from anxiety and depression.

Grade: B

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 20.73 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

This datapoint measures the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term care.

Grade: D

In Arrowhead Health and Rehab, 11.5 Percentage of Patients

This tells you the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term care.
