Center at Parkview is a very-small nursing home located in Pueblo, Colorado. This facility is one of the most elite nursing homes we assessed. A grade of this caliber requires superb scores across the board. We were not surprised to discover that this is one of the three best facilities in the city. The best aspect of this nursing home's strong report card was its short-term care score. short-term care grades are discussed in the next section

Short-term Care Quality
To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an elite grade of A+ for its short-term care rating. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. It performed as well as just about any facility in Colorado in this metric with 72.5 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term patients are able to return home.
Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's government inspections. We awarded it an A for that category. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more information about this nursing home. Without complete deficiency related data, it ended up being challenging to really evaluate this nursing home in the area of inspections.
This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
In the last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care rating. This wrapped up a very strong profile. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
