To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We weren't able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received high marks in the area of short-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our best scores in that area with a score of A+. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Minnesota in this area with 64 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
This nursing home also received an A+ nursing grade, making it one of the few nursing homes to receive multiple A+ category grades. In computing our nursing scores, we weigh both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 8.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This was one of the highest figures we found. In addition, we found that a significant portion 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 nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, it performed as well as any nursing home in the country in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
In the final category, this nursing home was given another A+ for its long-term care grade, topping off an amazing profile of A+'s in each of our categories. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to find this facility's vaccination rates. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
