With just five nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of choices in Annapolis, Maryland. This relatively small group of nursing homes in this city received a respectable city grade of B-. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the local city of Middle River a city grade of D, which is a very poor grade. Clearly, we found the nursing homes in Annapolis to be on a whole other level than the ones in Middle River. One of the highlights of this city's profile is its nursing homes' strong nursing scores, which we will address in the following paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's nursing grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Annapolis a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our higher grades. Nursing grades this high are a favorable sign for the levels of staffing at the facilities in the city. In addition, the city earned a B+ in the area of short-term care. In the other categories we looked at, this place earned slightly below average grades for our inspections and long-term care categories respectively.
