The Oaks at Lakewood is the lone nursing home located in Lakewood, Washington. It looks like this facility is a well below average nursing home. A grade in this range indicates we found some red flags. This wasn't the worse facility we graded, but we'd still struggle to recommend it.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B in this category, which was much better than its overall score. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this nursing home received impressive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility received a solid government inspection report this year as well. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B-. We were surprised this nursing home earned three grades of this caliber. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was long-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.335075 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
