Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a great nursing home is it received an impressive grade in inspections. Inspections ended up being its best category. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to alert you to the fact that this nursing home was given an elite score of A in our long-term care category. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to residents. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.044586 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Moving on our next category, this facility was given an excellent short-term care score. In fact, it received a grade of A- in this category. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next area we looked at is nursing. This nursing home was given a strong nursing score this year, with a B. Although this isn't nearly as dominant as some of its other grades, this remains one of the more favorable scores in that area. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses spent with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 nursing home Indiana in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving residents at least once a day.
