This nursing home also received a fine long-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this nursing home's second most impressive category grade. In that area, this facility received a score of A. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. On top of assessing the impressive volume of care provided by aids and other staff at this facility, we also were pleased by the nursing home's vaccination statistics. By way of example, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.5 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. This combination proved to be successful as this nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.85 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

With 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this nursing home surpassed the overwhelming majority of facilities. Finally, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home the country when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Switching gears to our final category, this facility received a high-end short-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in this category, rounding out one of our better profiles.

This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It fared as well as just about any nursing home in Iowa in this area with 56.3 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.
