Short-term Care Quality
We also found that this facility excelled in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. In our short-term care category, we strive to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Remarkably, this facility provides about 1.5 times as many hours of services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we assessed. This is certainly a very favorable sign. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in New Mexico in this area with 74 percent of its residents returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
Adding to an already impressive profile, this facility also received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. As a result, we awarded it an A+ inspection grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also want to alert you to the fact that this facility received a high-end score of A in our long-term care category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. It doesn't appear that this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In the last area, we gave this nursing home a A+ for our nursing rating. This rounded out a very impressive profile. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This was one of the more impressive figures we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in the nation when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
