There is unfortunately only one nursing home in Novato, California, providing for a relatively small population of 58,652 people. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards. One of the highlights of this facility's report card is its strong nursing rating, which we will address in the following paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's only nursing home's nursing grade was better than its overall grade. In fact, we awarded it a B in this area, which is one of our better scores. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home also earned one of our better grades in the area of inspections, where we gave it a B in the category. In the other categories we looked at, Novato received grades of B- and D for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Even with an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be an issue for some people.
