Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care grade ended up being one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.83721 percent of its residents. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Park Health Center?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an D for that category, which is one of our best grades. When computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was short-term care, ended up being this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its weak rating in this area, we were not surprised to discover this place provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist 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. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
