Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This place provided 6.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is among the more impressive figures in the country. A significant portion of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the more skilled levels of nurses. We were really impressed by both of these statistics. On top of offering high levels of care, this place also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, it performed as well as any facility in Ohio in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as good indicators of the quality of nursing care being provided.
