Our inspection ratings are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It does not appear that we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also was given an A+ short-term care grade, making it one of the few facilities to be awarded several A+ category grades. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. This place is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. It provided approximately one and a half times as many registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country with 71.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home also received an A+ for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provides an incredible 7.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Out of that total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any nursing home in Ohio in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

The final area we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home was given an A. This finished off a very favorable profile. Very few facilities earned an A- or higher in every category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it 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 an impressively low number.
