Finally, we also assessed 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 facility Iowa in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more often.
This facility also received an A+ inspection score, making it one of the few places to receive multiple A+'s in our category grades. This grade is based on the facility's government inspections. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
