Historical

In addition to being an elite facility overall, this facility performed well in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Very few nursing homes performed this well in this area. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area generally have few severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

This exemplary nursing home also performed remarkably in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A+. Few facilities fared better in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to offering elite levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This statistic is also much better than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Historical

This nursing home also was superb in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Only a select group of nursing homes performed better in this category. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It performed as well as just about any nursing home in Colorado in this area with 74.4 percent of its patients returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

This is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in several of the quality-based metrics we looked at. With below five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category.
