Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of receiving a great overall rating, this nursing home also received an A+ inspection score. This score is based on its recent inspection reports. An A+ in this category is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Iowa in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning our third area, this facility received an excellent long-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A- in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.111115 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home received a respectable short-term care score. Even though this is not as good as several of its other scores, this is still not a major area of concern. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
