Best Nursing Home in Amery, Wisconsin Awards 2020
Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall score was bolstered by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in this category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is a great sign for the quality of care at this nursing home.
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing rating is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its third highest category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our long-term care grades are more important for those requiring more conventional services related to activities of daily living. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.78542 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care, which was this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a D in that category. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Given its abysmal grade in this category, we were not shocked to discover that this nursing home offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
