There are surprisingly just 4 nursing homes located in Bellflower, California, providing for a decent size population of 76,615 people. The relatively small number of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. This grade is not the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. One of the highlights of this city's report card is its nursing homes' strong inspection ratings, which we will address in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its impressive inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher scores in this area, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. In addition, Bellflower also fared well in the category of government nursing with a B. In the last two categories, the city earned a B- for its long-term care score and a C for short-term care.
