Best Nursing Home in Alaska Awards 2019

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to a phenomenal overall grade, this facility also received A+ nursing grade. The nursing rating includes a handful of factors, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its top-shelf assessments in other areas, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. This nursing home is off the charts in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has received near flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we graded, this facility received a very favorable grade of A- in our short-term care category. With this grade, the facility rounded out a straight A profile. Short-term care scores are critical for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
