Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In this area, we awarded it an A+. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home an B for our nursing rating. There are many subcategories included in this grade. Most of these criteria relate to staffing levels. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility Ohio in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient even once per day.

On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a C for this category. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most important for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
