Saint Cloud, Florida has just four nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We awarded this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a perfectly respectable score. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Rockledge, which received a city grade of D. We found Saint Cloud to be a far better option.

In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this city really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Very few cities earned a better grade in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A- for our long-term care rating. Lastly, the city received a B for nursing and a B- in the area of short-term care.
