Historical

In addition to being a strong facility overall, it also earned A+ inspections recently. Its inspections were virtually perfect. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Sadly, this nursing home was hit with a category L deficiency, which was not what we expected given its inspection score. These are the most concerning deficiencies. This category means CMS identified a widespread deficiency placing patient safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Even a single deficiency in this category is concerning. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.

Among its many elite scores, this nursing home received first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in this area. In our short-term care score, we try to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This place fared as well as just about any nursing home in the nation in this area with 61.7 percent of its residents returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this metric.

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given an elite score of A- in our long-term care area. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to providing well above average levels of nursing care and other staffing, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.74293 percent of its residents. This statistic is also significantly higher than most nursing homes. This combination proved to be successful as this facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.91 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Historical

Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home was awarded a respectable nursing score. Even though this is not nearly as good as a few of its other category grades, this is truly nothing to be ashamed of. Our nursing score analyzes quite a few data points, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is among the higher totals in Ohio. Lastly, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. Specifically, we looked at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as predictive indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
