Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor dings aren't something to panic about.
Adding to its impressive resume, this facility also excelled in nursing. We awarded it a grade of B+ for that category. Nursing grades are largely based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 place 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 by employing a policy of turning a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home received an impressive short-term care grade, with a B in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is long-term care, proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. This really is one of the few weak links on an otherwise strong profile. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.85714 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
