Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we awarded this facility a grade of A- for the area of inspections. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given an impressive short-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this category. In our short-term care rating, we seek to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 60 percent of its patients returning home. At most facilities, less than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Our nursing rating features several subcategories. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed above average in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 90.90909 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected but still a decent percentage. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had a relatively high 4.32 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Neither its vaccination record nor its hospitalization rate were strengths for this facility in this category.
