San Bruno, California is a small city with 41,130 people. The city features only one nursing home, which is fewer than we were hoping for. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a first-rate overall grade of A-. We were impressed enough with this city to rank it as one of the twenty five highest rated cities in all of California. This statistic is also a reminder that this state has plenty of cities with high quality nursing homes. While this seems like a great option, we would not blame you if you want to explore nursing homes in other cities.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's sole nursing home performed remarkably well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for short-term care, which is one of our highest scores. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We also gave this nursing home an A for our long-term care category. Rounding out its first-rate report card, San Bruno received grades of A- and B+ for our inspections and nursing categories respectively.
