Long-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our long-term care rating. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility gave the vaccine to only 81.26315 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing grades are mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Does this page answer your questions about Bridge Point Center?
Unfortunately, this facility received really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing them to receive a lowly F for inspections. An F in this category is generally a signal that we found red flags on the facility's inspection reports. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by CMS had potential to cause actual harm to patients. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a poor score in this category also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are presumably most important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, 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 considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
