Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its much more favorable nursing rating this year. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall score. When determining our nursing ratings, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Parkview Home?
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. Generally, you should be most cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This often indicates that a nursing home's bad performance has been an issue for several years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 94.48819 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
