Top Nursing Home in Wisconsin Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is it earned a favorable inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you 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. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area was its short-term care score, where it was given a C. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility gave the vaccine to only 88.46154 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
