Medical Staff Hours Per Patient (2019)
One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received dominant marks in the category of short-term care. For this reason, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A+. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This facility is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. In fact, it offered roughly 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. This is what we like to find when grading a facility in this category. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Wisconsin in this area with 71.5 percent of its residents returning home. For most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Furthermore, we found that a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses.
