With 206,095 people, Aurora, Illinois is relatively large city. Surprisingly, there are only 2 nursing homes there, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. This city received a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a strong city score. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Saint Charles. While we aren't raving about either city, we found the nursing homes in Aurora to be slightly better. Finally, this place's nursing homes were consistent in all four of the major categories we assessed. More information about its category grades is available in the next section.
While this city received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is more impressive than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving favorable inspection reports this year, we gave Aurora one of our better grades in that area with a B. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This city's next best category was nursing, where we awarded it a B- in this category. In our final two categories, we gave Aurora middle of the road grades for our short-term care and long-term care categories.
