To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In computing our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This place provided 5.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We are really impressed by both of these figures. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in Colorado in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We view these statistics as good indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.
In addition, this facility also earned a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that area with an A. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a dominant short-term care score. Indeed, this is its third strongest category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Our short-term care grade is often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this nursing home provides roughly 50% more hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most nursing homes we assessed. This is definitely a great sign. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. We want to to point out this potential weakness, but you shouldn't focus exclusively on a single area either. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information about vaccinations. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
