Registered Staff Hours
The main thing propping up this nursing home's profile is its elite nursing score. In fact, we awarded this nursing home an A- in that category. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 Kansas in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving a resident at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. In the category of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of care provided by a facility, rather than more sophisticated services. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 58.44156 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points less than what we expected. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The last category we looked at is inspections. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. Nevertheless, it wasn't quite as good as some of this nursing home's other category grades. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
