Registered Staff Hours
We also would like to note that this facility excelled in our nursing score. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We analyzed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 place Idaho in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a resident more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a high-end short-term care grade. This actually turned out to be its second strongest category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of A. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor dings are not something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care grade. Although this wasn't as elite as some of its other grades, this is still a middle of the pack score. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.39777 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
