Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a positive short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a B in this category, which is one of our better. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. This nursing home fared much better in the final metric we assessed in this area, which was the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. This place fared as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 74 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a very good score. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 79.695435 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is several points lower than the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is nursing, in which this nursing home received an abysmal score in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular facility averaged a meager 2.8 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This number is quite a bit below the national average. This nursing home also had abysmal scores in some of the quality-based metrics to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this measure. This is a bad sign when you consider that so many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
