There are three nursing homes in West Covina, California, so at least you have a few choices. These nursing homes did not really excel from a quality point of view either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger grades at the city level. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of San Dimas. With San Dimas receiving an awful grade, West Covina appears to be a better bet. The best part of this place's report card was is its inspection grade. Inspection reports are discussed in the next section.
While this city received a middle of the road overall grade, its inspection grade is notably better than its overall score. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving favorable inspection reports this year, we gave West Covina one of our higher grades in this category with a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. In addition, the city earned a grade of B for our nursing category. Rounding out its report card, we awarded the city grades of B and D for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Despite an otherwise strong profile, a long-term care rating this poor may be concerning for some prospective residents.
