Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of faring well overall, this nursing home earned nearly flawless government inspections. Therefore, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Adding to this nursing home's list of accomplishments, it also received a superb short-term care grade. We gave them a dominant strong of A in this category. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. There are quite a few criteria included in this category. Most of these subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving residents more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, which turned out to be this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. However, you should not assess this facility based solely on a single bad category, as it received multiple very strong grades in other categories. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
