Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility fared well in short-term care. We awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This facility is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. The facility offered roughly 1.5 times as many registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this facility. In addition to excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in this area with 66.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in New Mexico when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our final category, this facility received an acceptable long-term care rating. While this is not as elite as several of its other category grades, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. This facility's vaccination records weren't as favorable a few of the other statistics in this category, such as its nursing hours data. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 62.16216 percent of its patients. We would love to see some improvement in this area in the future. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
