There are two facilities in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, which at least gives you a few choices. We gave the nursing homes here a very good city grade of B+. Even with only a few facilities, this is still an impressive city grade. This is a better grade than the average city in the country. Finally, this city's category grades were every bit as strong as its city grade. You can learn more about these in the next section.
This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received almost perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Great Barrington an impressive grade of A- for this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. Great Barrington also really excelled in the category of long-term care, where we gave it an A-. Rounding out its impressive profile, the city earned a B+ for its nursing score and a B+ for short-term care. Great Barrington really did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
