Healthcare Center at Wittenberg Village is a large non-profit nursing home in Crown Point, Indiana. This facility is a lower end facility. A grade of this caliber suggests we found a few red flags. If you are not happy with this facility's poor overall grade, you may find your options to be limited in Crown Point. The city has just one other nursing home. The only positive thing we can really say about this nursing home is that it did not receive any F's in any of the categories we assessed. Additional information about its category grades can be found below.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. The nursing score is based on many factors, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second least favorable category is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a well below average score. In crafting our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we analyzed was long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated only 70.136986 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
