Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories J through L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to place patient safety or health in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
Included in this facility's litany of rock-bottom scores was its F in the area of long-term care. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 83.5729 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Generations at Elmwood Park?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. In determining our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was given an abysmal grade here as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. With our short-term care grade, we try to create a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The final metric we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.5 percent of its patients returning home.
