Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than its overall grade. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. When determining our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this place 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.

Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more favorable category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. This is certainly a major disappointment. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 98.13084 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
