Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a C for our long-term care rating. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 81.074165 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's second highest category is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. In determining our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing score is based on many factors, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was inspections. This facility did not receive positive inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we want to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines recently of more than $50,000. This generally suggests that inspectors became fed up after several years of bad government inspections.

Dunbar Center Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

In Dunbar Center, 3.85% of Patients had UTIs

This statistic is a measure of the percent of long-term care residents who have sustained urinary tract infections. UTI's may be an indicator of a facility with worst hygiene practices.
