Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. 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. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category grades came in the category of short-term care. This turned out to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Otterbein SeniorLife Cridersville?
We were surprised to find that this facility also excelled in the category of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an D for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This particular facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is long-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
