North Fort Myers, Florida is a relatively small city with 49,442 people. It has just one nursing home, which is fewer than we were hoping for. This facility received an overall grade of B, which is a good rating. We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of North Port. With North Port receiving an awful city grade, we found the nursing home in North Fort Myers to be in a totally different league than most of the nursing homes in North Port. Although this seems like a great option, we would not blame you if you want to explore other cities to see what they have to offer.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this city's only nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home also earned a B+ for the area of short-term care. In the last two categories, North Fort Myers received a B for its nursing grade and a B- in the area of long-term care.
