Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. The nursing rating assesses a handful of components, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This place boasts a really impressive 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, of which a significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly highly skilled levels of nurses. This is one of the better totals of nursing hours we found. On top of providing impressive levels of nursing care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in Minnesota when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its first-rate resume, this facility also was given a superb short-term care grade, with a score of A. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Minnesota in this area with 62.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also received favorable long-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our stronger grades in that category, with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. On top of patient-friendly nursing hour statistics, this nursing home's vaccination data is as good as it gets as well. Indeed, it vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Turning to inspections, it appears this facility has received quality government inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.
