Our data for Westfield, New Jersey is based on a single nursing home we found in the city. This nursing home was awarded an overall grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. One of the best aspects of this nursing home's profile is its stellar inspection score, which is addressed in the following section.
While its overall score was somewhat average, this city's sole nursing home performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This nursing home also earned a B+ for the area of short-term care. In our final two categories, this place were awarded a B- for its nursing rating and a grade of F in the area of long-term care. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor long-term care rating could be a concern for many people.
