Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the many reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is that it earned a very impressive inspection grade. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this category, we gave this nursing home an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to its high-end profile, this nursing home also was given a superb short-term care score, with a score of A. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is more often than not a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Our nursing score is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nursing home Wisconsin in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home also performed admirably in the long-term care category. We awarded it a grade of B+ for this category. This wrapped up a very impressive report card. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 95.424835 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
