The relatively small group of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Burbank, which received a city grade of C. These cities appear to be fairly comparable, with neither receiving very strong grades. One of the better aspects of this place's profile is its nursing homes' strong nursing scores, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's nursing score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave Lancaster a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Strong grades in this category generally mean the city's facilities offer high levels of staffing. Inspections appears to be this city's next best grade. The city earned a B- in this area. Lastly, Lancaster were awarded a B- for its long-term care rating and a grade of C for inspections.
