Short-term Care Quality
While we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for short-term care. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its long-term care rating, which is actually one of its higher category scores. In a long-term care setting, the 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. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.10714 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Does this page answer your questions about Parkway Health & Rehab?
We were stunned to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. We gave it an D for that category, which is one of our best grades. In determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Moving on the final category of inspections, this nursing home fared very poorly. It received an F in our inspection rating. For nursing homes with bad inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility had a deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it was not in one of the categories that suggest that it posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to point out that this place received large government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This typically indicates that a bad performance has been an issue for several years.
