Sandpoint, Idaho has just two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. This place's nursing homes received a world class city grade of A-, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Coeur D Alene, which received a city grade of B-. While there's nothing wrong with the nursing homes in Coeur D Alene, we found Sandpoint to be in a totally different league. The best part of this facility's strong profile was its nursing homes' long-term care ratings. Long-term care grades are discussed in the following section.
As mentioned above, this city received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that we gave Sandpoint an impressive grade of A in long-term care. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition, Sandpoint also performed remarkably well in our short-term care category, where we gave it an A- for this area. Rounding out its excellent profile, the city were awarded an A- for its inspections grade and a grade of B+ for nursing.
