Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. The nursing grade weighs a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most respectable category was long-term care, but it still received just a D in that category. This is still a relatively poor grade. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 94.38596 percent of its patients, which is a very solid percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about College Park Healthcare Center?
Among this place's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection score. Generally, this indicates we found red flags on the nursing home's government inspections. For facilities that received this poor of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this category. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
