Historical

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Historical

On the list of its many high-end grades, this facility was given a top-shelf short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in that area. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home provided more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. This is what we like to find when assessing a nursing home in this category. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 60.9 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

This facility was given an impressive long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that category with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.75903 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep 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.

Historical

In the last category, we gave this facility a grade of A+ for our nursing score. This finished off a first-rate profile. Our nursing score analyzes quite a few subcategories, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.
