Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall score, this facility excelled in inspections, which is based on the facility's recent inspection reports. We awarded it an A for this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Compounding its strong assessments in other areas, we gave this facility a score of A for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. When we assessed this place's nursing hours, we found it offered substantially more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned to the community from this facility. It outperformed the overwhelming majority of facilities in the country in this area with 65.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A-. When determining our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provided 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Roughly one-fourth of these hours were provided by registered nurses, which are among the most skilled nurses. This is an impressive ratio of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours performed by skilled nurses more in computing our nursing scores. 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 nursing home Ohio in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the last area, this facility received an extremely favorable long-term care rating. Even though this is not nearly as elite as a few of its other grades, this is nevertheless one of our more impressive grades we offer. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.03546 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
