Chelmsford, Massachusetts has only two nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. This city's nursing homes received an excellent city grade of B+, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for by having high quality nursing homes. This is a well above average grade with most places receiving a B or lower. This city's profile was also very consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can read more about these in the next section.
Part of the reason this city performed well overall is that many of its nursing homes fared well in the category of government inspections with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. In addition, the city also fared well in the area of health nursing with a grade of B+. Wrapping up its quality report card, we gave Chelmsford favorable scores for our short-term care and long-term care categories as well.
