Best Nursing Home in Sheboygan, Wisconsin Awards 2019
Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a great overall score, this facility performed even better in the area of inspections which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for this category, which is one of our highest grades. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. 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
This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Very few nursing homes performed more favorably in this area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. This really is one of just a couple of weak points of an otherwise strong profile. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
