Westlake, Ohio is a small city with 32,729 people. It has 5 nursing homes, which is a decent selection for a city of this size. With a city grade of B-, you should be able to find a respectable facility in the city. This is right about in the middle of the pack by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. The best part of this city's profile is its nursing homes' remarkable inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really want to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave them an elite grade of A- in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. The second highest score we gave this place in any category was its short-term care grade, where we awarded it a B-. Finally, Westlake received a grade of B- in our nursing category and a grade of D for long-term care. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this city's weak long-term care grade may be concerning for many prospective residents.
