Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our short-term care rating. In our short-term care rating, we try to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities 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. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Does this page answer your questions about The Waterview Woods?
Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For places with poor inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed one category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. Lastly, we need to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines of over $100,000. This generally signifies that a nursing home's bad track record spanned multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.354836 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
