Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really excelled in our long-term care category, where it received an A. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.15254 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Adding to its impressive category grades, we gave this facility a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Does this page answer your questions about Park Ridge Care Center?
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. The nursing score weighs several components, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a solid grade in this area, with a B-. While this isn't as favorable as a few of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
