Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this nursing home also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was given a C. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 76.875 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we analyzed is short-term care, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a D in that category. This really was one of the couple of weak links on a quality profile. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
