Short-term Care Quality
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home is above the national average both in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. These are generally good indicators of quality short-term care. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed as well as just about any nursing home in Ohio in this area with 63.8 percent of its residents returning home.
The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Turning our third area, this facility received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Turning to our final category, this facility was awarded a very strong nursing score. We gave it an A- in that area, rounding out a straight A profile. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This was one of the higher figures we found. In addition, a significant percentage of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any facility in the country in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
