Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing.

Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Colorado in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid score in that category, with a C. Even though this is not as high as several of its other grades, it is still not a poor grade. In calculating our long-term care grades, we size up the personal care offered to a facility's patients. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
