This includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Remarkably, this nursing home provides about 50% more services from physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is a very favorable sign. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that it performed as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 73.1 percent of its patients returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
