This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. It fared as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 64.8 percent of its patients returning home.

Adding to its impressive category scores, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor dings aren't something to panic about.
