Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it received an A+ inspection grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. When determining a facility's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This place offers an extremely impressive 4.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is among the better totals in Wisconsin. Lastly, this place was also above average in each of the major quality measures we looked at in this category. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also received an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. In our short-term care assessment, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were pleased to find that this nursing home employs both registered nurses and physical therapists. The same can't be said for all nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility with 59.8 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility was awarded a strong nursing grade this year, with a grade of B. While this was not nearly as impressive as many of its other grades, this remains one of our stronger scores for this category. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of offering elite levels of nursing care, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This statistic is also far better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
