With 74,817 people, Avondale, Arizona is a relatively small city. Unfortunately, there is just one nursing home there. This facility was awarded an overall grade of B-, which is a a solid grade. This is right about the middle of the road by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. The best part of this nursing home's profile was its stellar inspection score. We discuss inspections in the next section.
While its overall grade was not elite, we awarded this city's nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home also earned an impressive grade of A- in our long-term care category. In our final two categories, we awarded the city grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing score of this caliber may be an ominous sign for levels of nurse staffing.
