Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a grade of B in nursing. Nursing scores are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Does this page answer your questions about Cheyenne Mountain Center?
Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Generally, you should be especially cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. Amazingly, this particular nursing didn't have any deficiencies on its inspection report. Clearly, this was not the area dragging down its inspection grade. Finally, we would like to point out that this place was assessed large government fines of over $100,000. This generally indicates that a bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 94.638695 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
