Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this facility earned an A+ inspection score. This is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To add to its high-end performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a score of A- for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. This nursing home clearly fared well enough in these measures to receive a quality grade in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home Iowa in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to the next area, this nursing home also performed well in our short-term care category. We gave it a B+ for this area. This topped off a first-rate report card. Our short-term care scores are arguably most critical for individuals needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
