Palatine, Illinois offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. This place's limited supply of nursing homes were awarded a good city grade of B. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Streamwood, which received a city grade of C. We found Palatine to be a far better option. This city's profile was also consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next paragraph.
On top of receiving a good overall grade, this city's nursing homes received strong inspection grade. In fact, we gave Palatine a grade of B+ in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. The city earned a grade of B+ in the area of long-term care. Rounding out its quality report card, Palatine earned a grade of B+ for nursing and a B in short-term care. We found Palatine to be strong in each category we assessed.
