Top Nursing Home in New Mexico Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category grade came in nursing. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Our nursing grade assesses many factors, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place New Mexico in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Does this page answer your questions about Albuquerque Post Acute?
We also found that this facility has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. In our short-term care grade, we try to craft a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It doesn't look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
