Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing rating is based on a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 Alaska in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
On the list of its many high-end scores, this facility received an excellent short-term care score. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in this area. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more important for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

We also wanted to point out this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of B+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of B. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 85.35032 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
