Top Nursing Home in Oregon Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall grade was bolstered by the fact that it has received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it a strong score in that area, with a grade of B+. This is a much better score than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. The nursing grade includes a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a resident even once per day.

In computing our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is generally a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. It does not look like this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was long-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to only 81.76795 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
