Historical

In addition to faring well in its overall grade, this nursing home received an excellent inspection report. Consequently, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

Adding to its first-rate assessment, this nursing home also was given a dominant short-term care score, with a score of A. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is frequently a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This was more of a strength for this nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Colorado in this area with 58.3 percent of its patients returning home. With most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Historical

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. Our nursing rating includes several factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these areas as good measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

Moving on to the next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in our long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this category. This finalized a very impressive report card. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.54 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
