Top Nursing Home in Wisconsin Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also earned an A+ inspection score. This grade is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. An A+ in this area is one of the best complements we can pay to a nursing home. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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 nursing home Wisconsin in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on our third category, this nursing home was awarded an excellent long-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A in that area. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.42147 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this nursing home was given a high-end short-term care rating. We gave it a grade of A- in this area, resulting in this facility receiving straight A's. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
