Middleboro, Massachusetts is an average size city with 23,106 people. The city features only 2 nursing homes, which doesn't provide you with too many options. The nursing homes in this city received a superb city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still quite an accomplishment. In fact, this city's city grade was even better than the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Taunton. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that we gave those nursing homes in Taunton a city grade of B, which is a good grade in its own right. We were so impressed with Middleboro that we ranked it as one of the top 500 cities in the country.
This city received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of the city's facilities received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave Middleboro an impressive grade of A for this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. In addition, Middleboro also really excelled in the category of long-term care, where we gave it an A. Lastly, this place were awarded a B+ in our nursing category and a C in the area of short-term care.
