Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Although we weren't high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our long-term care rating. This score is much more impressive than this nursing home's overall score, which would have been even worse without this grade. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its weak grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn this facility provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth category, this facility didn't fare very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. We looked at the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This number is well below the national average. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this facility also didn't fare as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this nursing home's nursing grade quite a bit.

Northridge Health and Rehabilitation Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: B-minus

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 9.09% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: D

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 5.99% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is the percentage of residents that sustained a major fall. Falls resulting in severe injury are considered by many in the nursing home industry to be an indicator of nursing care at a nursing home. Falls are often caused by lower quality nursing care.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: C

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 3.47% of Patients had UTIs

This statistic indicates the percentage of long-term stay residents that suffered from UTI's. UTI's may be an indicator of worse hygiene protocols. However, this metric may also be misleading for some facilities due to varying reporting standards for these infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: C

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 19.62% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This tells you the percent of patients who were given antipsychotic medications. While antipsychotic drugs may be helpful for many patients, it is important to ensure these drugs are being used appropriately. In some situations, excessive reliance on these medications may indicate a facility is using these drugs to subdue residents.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: D

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 31.21% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This is the percentage of patients who were given antianxiety medications. Antianxiety drugs are administered to residents experiencing anxiety or depression.

Appropriate Vaccine Usage

Grade: A

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 99.76% of Patients

This metric is a measure of the percent of long-term patients that were administered the flu and pneumonia vaccines. Respiratory viruses can be deadly for nursing home residents, making these types of vaccines critical to patient safety.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: B-minus

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 16.5% of Patients

This tells you the percent of residents who required additional assistance with activities of daily living over time. High levels of needing for assistance with ADL's may be a sign of the erosion of a resident's well-being.

Ability to Keep Residents Mobile

Grade: A-minus

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 20.74% of Residents

This indicates the percent of residents that retained mobility levels over time. Optimizing mobility can be a good sign for residents' well-being.

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

Grade: C

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 20.74% of Residents Rehospitalized

This datapoint is a measure of the number of rehospitalizations per 1,000 days of short-term resident care. Staying out of the hospital during rehabilitation is important to restoring the physical abilities of patients.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: B-minus

In Northridge Health and Rehabilitation, 13.89% of Patients

This is the number of emergency room visits per thousand days of short-term patient care.
