Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it earned a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest score is long-term care, but even there it received just a D in that area. This is still a relatively poor score. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 91.83674 percent of its residents, which is a bit lower than we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Does this page answer your questions about Glenwood Springs Health Care?
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated is short-term care, where this facility received a bottom of the barrel score in this category also. We gave it an F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Our short-term care scores are important for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this place offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
