With 56,505 people, Colton, California is a relatively small city. There are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't offer you too many choices. These nursing homes did not really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. This grade is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards.

This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its government inspections in recent years. We awarded the city one of our higher grades in that area, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This city received its next highest score in the category of nursing, where we gave it a B-, which is also a respectable grade. Lastly, this place earned slightly below average grades for our short-term care and long-term care categories.
