Overall RatingsThe Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center is a nursing home that proudly ranks within the top half of facilities based on overall ratings, and those ratings are pleasantly a bit higher than the state average. The skilled staff contributes to the nursing home's impressive accomplishment of earning a 4-star health inspection rating, which is the penultimate grade achievable. This places the facility at a commanding place in the top 30% of all facilities when one considers the health inspection rating. This rating is remarkably higher than the average within the state. However, one point of consideration is the Quality Rating, where the Care Center finds itself in the lower 40% of all facilities, with a rating that is slightly below the state average.
Staff RatingsTobacco Root Mountains Care Center, despite having a low 1-star staff rating, stands out in terms of nursing aid and licensed staffing hours, being in the top 10% of facilities for the former and in the upper half for the latter. The staff spends an average of 2.96 hours on nursing aid per resident daily, significantly outperforming the statewide average of 2.31 hours. Similarly, the licensed staffing hours per resident per day here is 1.52, higher than the state's 1.34. The care center also surpasses the state's average of Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) staffing, with 0.9 hours compared to the state's 0.54, putting it in the top half of all facilities. Registered Nurse (RN) staffing, however, is slightly below state average, at 0.62 hours against the 0.8 state average, yet this still positions the center in the top half of facilities. Physical therapist staffing is an area of weakness, as it is in the bottom 20% of facilities, where staffing hours per resident per day are an underwhelming 0.01, significantly below the state average of 0.05.
Covid DataThe Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center is distinguished among nursing homes in terms of its vaccination rates. In terms of residents being up to date with the latest vaccinations, the care center ranks in the upper echelon, the top 20% of all facilities. The vaccination rate amounts to 85.2%, which is significantly greater than the state's average resident vaccination rate of 61.3%. Furthermore, the center shines in terms of staff vaccinations as well; it is placed within the top 10% of all facilities. With a remarkable staff vaccination rate of 89.1%, it far surpasses the state's average staff vaccination rate of 21.9%. Thus, the Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center greatly prioritizes the health and safety of both its residents and staff, consistently maintaining vaccination rates that are notably higher than the state average.
Quality MeasuresThe Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center, a nursing home, demonstrates a mixed performance report when it comes to resident care. Regrettably, the facility sits within the bottom 30% of nursing homes in terms of residents experiencing one or more falls leading to significant injury, with its percentage at 4.44%, slightly less than the state's percentage of 4.73%. It also falls in the lower half with a 14.71% of residents whose capability to move independently has declined, again, a figure slightly lesser than the state's 17.26%. In contrast, it is placed in the top 10% for administering antianxiety or hypnotic medication to residents, showing a percentage of 2.25% against the state's 15.79%. Similarly, it ranks in the leading 40% for residents with depressive symptoms at 1.12%, against a higher state average of 5.52%. However, a concern comes from observing that it falls within the worrisome bottom 10% of facilities when it comes to residents losing alarming amounts of weight, noting a percentage of 12.36% which stands higher than the state's 7.84%.
Emergency and Hospitalization Quality MeasuresThe Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center is a leading nursing home, rated in the top 10% of facilities for its low rate of hospitalizations per 1000 days, boasting a remarkable score of 0.22. This makes it considerably more efficient than the state's average of 1.31 hospitalizations per 1000 days. Additionally, the care center is recognized within the upper-half rank of facilities for its rate of outpatient emergency department visits per 1000 days, with a significantly lower score of 0.93 compared to the state's average of 1.28. This data highlights Tobacco Root Mountains Care Center's commitment to providing exceptional care for its residents, minimizing the need for outside hospitalizations and emergency visits.
