Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility excelled in our short-term care rating, where it received an A. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating includes several datapoints, most of which are based on nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Ohio in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this category, we gave this nursing home an D. We wanted to draw your attention to this possible weakness, however, you shouldn't over-emphasize a single area either. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 94.44444 percent of its patients, which is an above average total. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
