There are 11 facilities in Sarasota, Florida, which gives you quite a few options to choose from. Impressively, the nursing homes here received an excellent city grade of B+. This is even more impressive given the number of facilities in the city. In fact, this place's city grade was even better than the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Tampa. This is especially impressive in light of the fact that we awarded those nursing homes in Tampa a city grade of B, which is a good grade in its own right. Finally, this city's category grades were just as strong as its overall city grade. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded Sarasota an A- in our inspections rating. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. The city also received an impressive long-term care grade where it earned a B+ in this category. Wrapping up its quality report card, the city received a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating and a B+ in nursing. This place really didn't have any weak links as far as we could tell.
