Registered Staff Hours
This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second best score. In our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Does this page answer your questions about Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber?

The nursing rating analyzes many datapoints, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is long-term care, is this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in this category. This was one of the few dings on an otherwise strong profile. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the vaccine to only 77.12418 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
