With a population of 99,475 people, Vacaville, California is a moderately populated city. Surprisingly, there are only 2 nursing homes there, which is not quite as many as we expected in a city of this size. The small number of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of West Sacramento a city grade of D, which is a well below average score. While neither city received a glowing review, we found the facilities in Vacaville to be a better bet. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' impressive nursing scores, which you can find in the next paragraph.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its impressive nursing score. We awarded the city one of our higher scores in that category, with a B. Our nursing score includes numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. In addition, the city also excelled in the area of health short-term care with a B. Lastly, Vacaville earned a grade of B- for its inspections grade and a grade of D for long-term care. It goes without saying that this city's long-term care score really pulled down its overall grade.
