Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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.

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home was awarded high marks in the area of short-term care as well. As a result, we awarded it one of our most superb scores in that area with a score of A-. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. It performed as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 66.5 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-stay residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Our nursing score weighs several components, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed is long-term care. This nursing home was given a strong long-term care rating in our assessment, with a B-. Even though this wasn't quite as elite as several of its other scores, this is nevertheless a decent score for this area. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 76.74419 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be several points less than the national average. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.47 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home.
