To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. It doesn't appear that we were able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
Adding to its top-shelf accomplishments in other areas, we gave this facility a grade of A for its short-term care score. Short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. This nursing home elevated its score in this area by providing more care from registered nurses to its patients than a typical nursing home. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This place fared as well as just about any nursing home in Indiana with 69 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay patients ever return home.
