Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on the facility's recent government inspections. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can offer a facility. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a score of A+ for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home is the gold standard when it comes to skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it supplied about one and a half times as many physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Oregon in this area with 72.4 percent of its residents returning home.
In addition, this facility received high marks in the area of nursing. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This facility provided 8.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This was one of the better figures we found. Furthermore, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both really impressive figures. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as good measures of the caliber of nursing care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
The fourth category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave them another great grade of A+ in this category. This topped off a spectacular profile of straight A+'s. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
