This nursing home's overall grade was propped up by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them a strong score in that area, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually outpaced most facilities in this category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is often a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. This nursing home provides a decent amount of services from physical therapists and registered nurses based on our assessment. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Indiana in this area with 56.2 percent of its residents returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final category, this facility really did not fare well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is its poorest category grade. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home also was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Although it had 1.72 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad since it had some more complex patients.
