Short-term Care Quality
One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is as good as it gets in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy, we found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home with 73.6 percent of its patients returning home.
This facility also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This score is based on the place's inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In the third category we analyzed, this facility received quality marks in the category of long-term care. Consequently, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a of A+. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In the final category we looked at, this facility received a very strong grade of A in our nursing category. With this grade, the facility completed a straight A profile. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides an incredible 11.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in Wyoming when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
