Northridge Care Center is the sole option we found in Baker, Louisiana. We gave this nursing home an overall grade of B-. A grade in this range requires some solid scores. In our view, this place should be a solid choice for quite a few people.

We will keep an eye on their inspections and quality scores to see whether their performance goes up or down under new ownership.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far better than its overall score. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's better category scores came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.15909 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. We looked at the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the final category we scored. Sadly, it received an F in this category. Even with several decent scores in other categories, this grade is still concerning so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
