There are 8 nursing homes located in Tallahassee, Florida, servicing a population of 275,476 people. The nursing homes here received a quality city grade of B. This is an average city grade nationally, which is perfectly respectable. We were also pleased to find a few facilities here with grades of A- or higher. These nursing homes should be at the top of your list.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's facilities received almost flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded Tallahassee an elite grade of A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. In addition, the city earned a grade of B+ for our nursing category. Rounding out its quality profile, Tallahassee received strong scores for our short-term care and long-term care categories as well.
