Historical

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care grade, with an A. With our short-term care rating, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in Indiana in this metric with 62.7 percent of its residents returning home. With most nursing homes, less than half of their short-stay patients are able to return home.

Historical

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a first-rate grade of A- in our long-term care category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Historical

Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home also performed well in our nursing category. We awarded it a B+ for this category. This rounded out a very strong report card. The nursing rating is based on a host of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as predictive measures of the quality of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
