With just four nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options to choose from in Brandon, Florida. The relatively small group of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this place. In particular, we wanted to make you aware that there is one above average facility in the city. This is probably where we would begin our search here.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Brandon a grade of B for its inspection score, which is one of our higher grades. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Brandon's second best category was short-term care, where it earned a B- in this category. Finally, the city were awarded a grade of B- for its nursing score and a C for long-term care.
