This facility vaccinated 96.36363 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing ratings are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This place boasts a really impressive 4.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, of which a significant percentage was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. This is one of the higher totals of nursing hours we found at any facility. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this nursing home also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared as well as any place Nevada in this category.

Historical

The fourth area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A. This finished off a very impressive report card. Not many nursing homes received an A- or better in every single category. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most important for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This facility is substantially above the national average in terms of its quantity of both registered nurse and physical therapy hours available to its residents. It offered roughly 1.5 times as much care per patient from both of these groups of skilled professionals than the average facility provided. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home rather than remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
