To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. We weighed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This nursing home provides an incredible 6.9 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Out of this total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in Oregon in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Adding to its dominant profile, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in the area. Short-term care ratings are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this place's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it provides more care from registered nurses to its residents than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. It performed decently in this area, with 48.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Furthermore, this nursing home also received impressive government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility was given an above average nursing rating this year, with a B. While this wasn't nearly as elite as several of its other scores, this is still one of our more impressive grades in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After looking at the significant amount of nursing hours provided by this facility, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be effective as this facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
