Best Nursing Home in Pueblo, Colorado Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many positive things to say about this place's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that area with a B-. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its third best category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, this facility did not fare well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. For long-term care residents, the 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 residents. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.183205 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
