Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we could find for this place. Our short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Does this page answer your questions about Westwood Health and Rehabilita?
We wanted to note that this facility received an F for its inspection rating. An F in this category is very concerning because it typically points to red flags on the nursing home's government inspections. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines totaling over $100,000. This generally suggests that a nursing home's poor track record spanned several years.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 38.36478 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly below what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
