With just four nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options in Hyattsville, Maryland. These facilities didn't really excel from a quality point of view either. The city was given a city grade of C, which is not one of our better scores at the city level. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this place's profile was is its inspection score. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its health inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher scores in that category, with a B. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Hyattsville's next highest grade came in nursing, where it received a grade of B-. In the last two categories, the city received grades of B- and D for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a long-term care rating in this range may be an issue for some people.
