With two nursing homes in the city, there are only a few choices in Lemon Grove, California. This place's limited supply of nursing homes were given a strong city grade of B. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Lakeside. We found the facilities in Lemon Grove to be in a totally different league than the ones in Lakeside. The best aspect of Lemon Grove's strong report card is its nursing homes' inspection scores. We discuss inspections in the next paragraph
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, the nursing homes in Lemon Grove performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. 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 number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. Lemon Grove also received one of our better grades in the area of nursing, with a grade of B+. In our final two categories, Lemon Grove earned middle of the pack grades for our short-term care and long-term care areas.
