With 141,692 people, Orange, California is a medium size city. Surprisingly, there are just 3 nursing homes in the city, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. We awarded the nursing homes here city grade of C, which is not quite as strong of a score as we like. This grade is below average by national standards. The best part of this place's report card was is its inspection rating. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded the city one of our better scores in this category, with a B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Inspections appears to be Orange's next best attribute. We gave it a grade of C in this category. In the last two categories, this place received middle of the road grades in our nursing and short-term care categories.
