Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great facility overall, it also earned A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were nearly flawless. Inspection ratings are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also want to note the fact that this facility received a high-end score of A in our long-term care area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 84.73283 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly less than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our third area, we gave this nursing home a score of A- for its short-term care grade. This is a very strong score. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more meaningful for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

The fourth area we assessed was nursing, where this nursing home received a grade of B+. This completed a very favorable profile. Very few nursing homes earned a B+ or higher in all four categories. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 facility Colorado in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving residents more often.
