Historical

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This place boasts a really impressive 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which a significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses. This is one of the most highly skilled levels of nurses. This is among the higher totals of nursing hours we found. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also performed well in several of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its residents suffering falls leading to serious injury, this nursing home performed as well as any facility Iowa. Avoiding serious falls is generally a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

This facility also was strong in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of A. Very few facilities received a better grade in this area. In our short-term care score, we strive to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This facility elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses than the average facility. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. This place was above average in this area with 49.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

In the final category, this facility also received an impressive long-term care grade, with an A-. This rounded out a straight A profile. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to this nursing home's impressive nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for seniors. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.
