With just five nursing homes in the city, you only have a few options in Danvers, Massachusetts. This relatively small group of nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of B, which is a very solid grade for the city. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of D received by the nearby city of Arlington. If you are choosing between these two cities, Danvers appears to be the likely winner. We were also pleased to find that this place's nursing homes did not have any weak links in any of the four major categories. Additional information about its category grades is available in the next section.
This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Danvers an impressive grade of A- for this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. In addition, Danvers earned a B+ for the city's nursing rating. In the last two categories, we gave the city middle of the pack grades in our long-term care and short-term care categories.
