Short-term Care Quality
In addition to being a first-rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Remarkably, this place provides about 1.5 times as many hours of services from registered nurses and physical therapists than most facilities we assessed. This is an encouraging sign. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it fared as well as just about any facility in Ohio in this area with 70.8 percent of its residents returning home.
This facility also earned an A+ inspection score, making it one of the rare nursing homes to receive multiple A+'s in our categories. This grade is based on the facility's recent government inspections. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It doesn't look like we were able to find information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
In the third category we looked at, this facility was given superb marks in the category of long-term care. Consequently, it was given one of our highest scores in that area with a of A+. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. It doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The fourth category we assessed was nursing, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of A. This finished off a very strong profile. Not many nursing homes received an A- or higher in all four categories. In calculating our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides an incredible 8.7 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Out of this total, many of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. In addition to offering high levels of nursing care, this facility also excelled in the quality measures we looked at. It performed as well as any facility in Ohio in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
