Wahiawa, Hawaii is a small city with 40,859 people. It has just one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. This facility earned an overall grade of C, so it's likely not a bad option. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. One of the best aspects of this facility's profile is its remarkable short-term care score, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing home performed especially well in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A+. Short-term care grades are generally used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. This place also received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. Rounding out its profile, Wahiawa earned grades of A- and F for our long-term care and inspections areas respectively. Even with an otherwise strong profile, an inspections rating in this range is still deeply concerning.
