With a population of 106,841 , Burbank, California is a moderately populated city. Surprisingly, there are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We gave the nursing homes here city grade of C, which is not quite as high of a score as we like. We actually found this city grade is better than the grade we gave the nearby city of North Hills. With North Hills receiving a terrible grade, Burbank certainly appears to be a better option. One of the better aspects of this place's profile is its nursing homes' impressive nursing scores, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city's nursing homes received a nursing score which is superior to its overall grade. We gave it a favorable grade of B in this category. Our nursing score analyzes a facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. Burbank earned its second highest grade in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-, which is also a decent grade. Lastly, we awarded the city a B- in our inspections category and a C in short-term care.
