Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our nursing category. We gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. There are quite a few subcategories within this grade. Most of these factors relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 Minnesota in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.
Adding to its impressive grades, we gave this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the 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.

One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 93.67088 percent of its patients. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at was short-term care. This facility was given an impressive short-term care score this year, with a B. This nursing home truly did not have any weak spots. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.
