Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a great overall grade, this facility also received A+ health inspections in recent years. Its inspections were virtually flawless. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our nursing grade. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 place Minnesota in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also received favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a grade of B+. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is generally a fair measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored is long-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a D in the area of long-term care, making this the nursing home's worst category. We would still suggest that you consider all of a nursing home's grades. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 91.02041 percent of its residents, which is a bit less than we anticipated. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
