With 105,183 people, Carlsbad, California is medium size city. Amazingly, there is just one nursing home in the city. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a superb overall grade of A. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Murrieta. We found the nursing home in Carlsbad to be rated much higher than most of the facilities in Murrieta. One of the best aspects of this city's profile is its inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city's sole nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This facility also performed remarkably well in our short-term care category, where it received an A+. Wrapping up its phenomenal report card, Carlsbad received grades of A and B+ for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively.
