Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 2.37 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most facilities due to it having some more complicated patients.

Historical

This nursing home has received near flawless government inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. It fared as well as just about any facility with 56.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Switching gears to the final category, this facility also performed well in the nursing category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. This completed a straight A report card. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 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 generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving patients even once per day.
