This city's nursing homes surprisingly fared well in the area of inspections for instance.
Despite receiving a terrible overall grade, the nursing homes in Rochester performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, many of the nursing homes here received strong government inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Rochester one of our better ratings in that area with a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. Surprisingly, this city performed better in our short-term care category as well, where it earned a grade of B- for this category. In our final two categories, Rochester received grades of C and F for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable performance, this city's weak long-term care score could be a problem for many prospective residents.
