With a population of 15,873 people, Fairhaven, Massachusetts is a relatively small city. There are just 3 nursing homes there, which does not give you too many options to choose from. The nursing homes in this city received an excellent city grade of A-. Even with just a few facilities, this is still quite an achievement. We found this city grade to be even better than the city grade of B received by the nearby city of Providence. Both cities received impressive grades, but Fairhaven appears to be an even better place to find a nursing home. As you might expect, Fairhaven had 3 nursing homes that were awarded a grade of A- or better. This offers you a couple of elite nursing homes.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, many of the facilities in Fairhaven performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. In addition, we also wanted to point out that we awarded Fairhaven a grade of A- for our long-term care category. Rounding out its phenomenal report card, Fairhaven received a grade of A- for its short-term care grade and a B+ in nursing.
