Historical

We would like to point out that this facility's inspection rating exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is a quality score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

We also gave this facility a strong grade in short-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which turns out to be one of our more favorable scores. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Ohio in this area with 60.5 percent of its patients returning home. With most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. The nursing rating weighs a handful of factors, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider some quality-focused statistics. We especially like to look at the percent of patients who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are decent measures of the quality of nursing care, since superior care can reduce these problems.

Historical

The next category we graded was long-term care, which is a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D in the area of long-term care. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 95.58012 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
