Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this facility also earned first-rate health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our best grades in that category, with an A-. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of B+ for our nursing rating. Nursing scores are largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Kansas in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our more favorable scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.01198 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home was given a grade of B- for the area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is often a useful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
