Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an A- in this area. Our nursing grade consists of a handful of datapoints, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Colorado in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a score of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services.

Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations.

Turning to the last category we assessed, this nursing home received a decent grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B- for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
