Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility excelled in our short-term care category, where it earned an A. Few facilities fared better in this area. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. This facility excelled in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered more care from physical therapists and registered nurses than the average nursing home. This is generally an excellent sign. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Utah in this area with 61.2 percent of its patients returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Building on its strong performance in other categories, we awarded this facility an B+ for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This facility offers 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, of which more than one hour of those were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In determining our nursing scores, we attach more significance to hours provided by registered nurses. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed better than average in this area. This is often a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of B+. Our inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.7529 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.13 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
