With just two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The nursing homes here received a first-rate city grade of A. Even with only a couple of facilities, this is still quite an accomplishment. We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of B received by the nearby city of Salem. Both cities have some quality nursing homes, but Marblehead appears to be in a totally different league. Not surprisingly, this city has 2 nursing homes that were awarded a grade of A- or better. This gives you a couple of top-shelf options.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded its facilities an A+ for this category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, the city also really excelled in the area of nursing, where we gave it a grade of A-. Wrapping up its top notch report card, this place earned an A- for its short-term care grade and a grade of B+ in long-term care.
