Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facilities second best category was long-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this category. With our long-term care grade, we focus on the sheer quantity of services provided by a facility, along with a series of qualitative metrics. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Does this page answer your questions about Westview Nursing & Rehabilitation Center?
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. When computing our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this nursing home did not perform well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its patients returning home.
