Top Nursing Home in Oregon Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is certainly concerning. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 90.90909 percent of its residents. This is a few points lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
