Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

An additional strength of this facility is its favorable score in long-term care. We gave it one of our best grades in that area, with a grade of A. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. In our short-term care grade, we seek to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this facility was subpar in many staffing metrics we looked at. It provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive area is nursing, which is the final category we looked at. We gave it a lowly F in this category. Despite multiple acceptable scores in other areas, this score is still alarming so we would like to to point it out. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Grade: D

In Vancrest of Van Wert, 74.54% Percentage of Resident
