Santa Paula, California is a relatively small city with 32,811 people. The city has just one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. We were relieved to discover that, this place's sole nursing home received a superb grade of A-, so at least there is one good option. We were so impressed with this city that we rated it as one of the 500 best cities in the country. This is impressive since we ranked thousands of cities around the nation. This facility's impressive profile was highlighted by its nursing score, which you can find in the next section.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's only nursing home performed extremely well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. The nursing category weighs quite a few datapoints, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. We also awarded this facility an A- for our short-term care category. Rounding out its strong profile, the city earned a B in our long-term care category and a B in the area of inspections. This place really did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
