There are surprisingly only 3 nursing homes in Huntington Beach, California, servicing a large population of 190,249 people. We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B-, which is a respectable rating. This is just about average by national standards, which is perfectly respectable. This place is stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have terrible scores in any of our major categories discussed below. More information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher grades in this area, with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. In addition, the city received a grade of B in our short-term care category. In our final two categories, the city received middle of the pack grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
