To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without having complete information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it ended up being a challenge to assess the place in this area.

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home fared very well in our short-term care rating. We gave them an elite grade of A+ in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. The facility provided about one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it fared as well as just about any facility in the country with 62.8 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.
Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing scores are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provided 4.8 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is among the better figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by these statistics. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any nursing home in Colorado in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care being provided.

The last category we graded is long-term care. This facility received a very good long-term care rating this year, with a grade of B-. While this is not nearly as good as a few of its other scores, this is nevertheless a respectable score in that category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. It does not appear that this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
