Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ in nursing. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Wisconsin in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a patient more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this facility's more favorable category grades came in the category of short-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This score is typically a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility received just a D in this area. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 80 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. For nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed one deficiency by government inspectors. Fortunately, it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we also want to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually means that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
