Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care score, which is not too bad of a score. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 6.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular place offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This statistic is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is long-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor score. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.734695 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: A-minus

In Christian Park Health Care Center, 77.3% Percentage of Resident
