Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Nursing scores are based largely on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is among the higher figures in the country. A significant percentage of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which are one of the most skilled levels of nurses. We are very impressed by both of these figures. In addition to offering impressive levels of care, this nursing home was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. For example, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These metrics are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a facility provides.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was strong in the category of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. It fared as well as just about any facility in Ohio with 64.7 percent of its residents returning home.

Another impressive feature of this facility is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care. This facility was awarded an above average long-term care rating in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Although this is not nearly as elite as some of its other scores, this is still a respectable rating in this category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. This nursing home's vaccination statistics lagged a bit behind some of the other statistics in this area, such as its nursing hours data. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 62.31884 percent of its residents. We would love to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Although it had 1.72 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than most facilities since it had more complicated patients.
