Best Nursing Home in Minnesota Awards 2021
Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. In determining our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 Minnesota 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 protocol of moving a resident even once per day.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, this nursing home received high marks in the category of long-term care. For this reason, it was given one of our best grades in that area with a score of A+. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health.

This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also received a first-rate short-term care score. In fact, this ended up being its third best category score. In that category, this facility received a score of A. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Adding to this facility's impressive profile, we gave this facility a score of A- for our inspections rating. With this grade, the nursing home completes its straight A report card. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
