Historical

This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. If it was not for this category, this nursing home's overall grade would have been much worse. Our short-term care scores are arguably more important for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 58.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. When determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Roughly a quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. This is a high ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in calculating our nursing scores. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Historical

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Historical

The last area we looked at is long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. It received a lowly F for this category, which is certainly concerning. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 99.58678 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.81 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
