Rockledge is a city with a population of 36,374 people. There are 2 nursing homes there to choose from.
While its overall grade was abysmal, we actually gave the nursing homes in Rockledge a decent grade of C in short-term care. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Surprisingly, we also gave Rockledge a decent grade of C for our nursing category. In the other categories we looked at, we awarded the city grades of C and D for our long-term care and inspections categories respectively. Despite an otherwise excellent profile, an inspections rating of this caliber is still deeply troubling.
