Registered Staff Hours
Although this facility's overall score was terrible, it fared pretty well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a reasonably solid long-term care rating this year. We gave it a grade of C in that area. Long-term care grades are used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 91.4405 percent of its residents. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. This place didn't excel here either, with 2.9 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this figure is quite a bit higher than the national average, this statistic may be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.
Does this page answer your questions about Park View Rehab Center?
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home offered just 2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is short-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. Short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 22.9 percent of its residents returning home.
