Our data for Anchorage, Alaska is based on just one nursing home we found in the city. We gave the city's only nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth considering. In a state where no cities received elite city grades, this city is about as good as you're going to do. In fact, this is the number one rated city in Alaska. One of the best aspects of this nursing home's report card is its stellar short-term care rating, which you can find in the next paragraph.
While its overall grade was not elite, we awarded this city's nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more critical for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. This place also really excelled in the category of nursing, where we gave it an A-. In the last two categories, the city earned a C for its long-term care grade and a grade of F in inspections. Even with an otherwise strong profile, an inspections score in this range is still deeply troubling.
