There are only 2 nursing homes located in Lompoc, California, servicing a relatively small population of 57,355 people. While this place didn't have a ton of nursing homes, this city received a first-rate city grade of A-. We were impressed enough with Lompoc to rank it as one of the twenty five highest rated cities in all of California. This is also a reminder that California has a long list of cities with high quality nursing homes. The best part of this city's impressive profile was its nursing homes' inspection grades. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Lompoc performed extremely well in our inspections category. In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded it one of our highest grades in that category with an A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We also wanted to point out that we gave the city an A for our short-term care category. Wrapping up its report card, we gave Lompoc strong grades for our nursing and long-term care areas as well.
