Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for its nursing grade. In crafting these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. One of this nursing home's strengths is registered nurse hours. We found that it offers more care from registered nurses to its residents than most facilities. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Kansas in this metric with 73.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 6.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is among the better totals in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by these statistics. On top of looking at levels of nursing care, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of C. This actually is this facility's worst category. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. This facility's vaccination data were a bit weaker than a few of its other statistics in this area, such as its nursing hours data. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 88.15789 percent of its patients. We'd love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
