Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We wanted to point out that this facility's short-term care grade outperformed its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for its short-term care grade, which is an above average grade. This really propped up its overall grade. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures 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 place Indiana in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection score was strong as well. In fact, we awarded it a B for its inspection reports, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last area, this facility really did not perform well. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this was this nursing home's weakest category. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 76.190475 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
