Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize that this facility has received near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home fared very well in our long-term care category. We gave them a dominant score of A+ in this area. Facilities that do well in this category typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 98.28571 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. The nursing grade includes several factors, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 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 nursing home Iowa in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the final category, this facility received a very strong short-term care grade. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this category, completing one of our more favorable profiles. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
