We also would like to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Nursing scores are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an incredible 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is much more care than what is offered by most places. Lastly, this place also excelled in the quality measures we assessed. For example, it fared as well as any nursing home Ohio when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as good indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided.

In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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.

Historical

Turning to our third area, this nursing home also earned a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area with 53.2 percent of its patients returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Historical

The final area we assessed was long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our more favorable grades in this area, with a B. While this wasn't as dominant as many of this facility's other scores, it is still a fine grade. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of offering elite levels of nursing care and other staffing, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. This combination proved to be effective as this nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
