Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it actually didn't perform as poorly in nursing. In fact, we gave it a B- for that area. The nursing score includes quite a few subcategories, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a B- for its short-term care score, which isn't a bad grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This facility received an F for its inspection rating. This is a particularly important category. Grades in this range often mean we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. 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 recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to patients. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final category, this nursing home really did not perform well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 98.139534 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

North Central Care Center Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: C

In North Central Care Center, 7.09% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This tells you the percent of patients that sustained a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers are skin damage resulting from remaining in one position for an excessive period of time.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: C

In North Central Care Center, 2.86% of Patients had Serious Falls

This metric tells you the percent of long-term patients that have sustained a fall leading to severe injury. Falls can happen for a variety of reasons, but high rates of major falls could be an indicator of lower levels of patient supervision.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: D

In North Central Care Center, 2.28% of Patients had UTIs

This indicates the percentage of residents who have had a urinary tract infection. UTI's are often caused by worse hygiene protocols. Better hygiene protocols can reduce the number of UTI's sustained by residents in a nursing home. We want to point out that this statistic is sometimes skewed by the fact that nursing homes have varying reporting standards for these infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: B

In North Central Care Center, 13.8% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This is the percentage of residents who were given antipsychotic medications. While antipsychotic medications may be helpful for many residents, it is important to make sure these medications are being used only where medically required. In limited cases, excessive reliance on these medications may indicate a facility is using these drugs to subdue residents.

In North Central Care Center, 12.29% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This gauges the percentage of long-term stay patients receiving antianxiety drugs.

This indicates the percentage of residents who are demonstrating depressive symptoms.

In North Central Care Center, 93.71% of Patients

This tells you the percentage of patients that received the pneumonia and flu vaccines. Higher vaccination rates should be standard at this point.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: A

In North Central Care Center, 10.98 Percentage of Patients

This metric measures the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term patient care. Staying out of the emergency room is one way to assess the well-being of patients during rehabilitation.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: A

In North Central Care Center, 74.42% Percentage of Resident

This datapoint is a measure of the percent of short-term care patients who experienced functional improvements, such as enhanced ability to perform activities of daily living. Some believe this is a reasonable measure of a facility's rehabilitation performance.
