With 354,475 people, Anaheim, California is relatively large metropolitan area. There are 14 nursing homes in the city, which provides you with plenty of options. This city's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+. A city grade in this range is not very common for a city with so many facilities. We also assessed the facilities in Huntington Beach, which received a city grade of B-. Although this is a respectable grade, Anaheim appears to be a better bet. This place's strong profile was highlighted by its nursing homes' inspection grades, which we will address in the next paragraph.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, most of the facilities in Anaheim performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, the city also received an impressive nursing rating where it earned a B+ in this area. Rounding out its impressive report card, Anaheim received a B for long-term care and a B in the area of short-term care. Anaheim did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
