With a population of 50,944 , Peabody, Massachusetts is a relatively small city. There are 5 nursing homes there, which should give you multiple options to choose from. The nursing homes in this city received a phenomenal city grade of A-. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the local city of Arlington a city grade of D, which is a very poor grade. Naturally, we found the facilities in Peabody to be on a whole other level than the ones in Arlington. The best part of this city's impressive profile is its nursing homes' inspection reports. Inspection reports are discussed in the next section
This city received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of its facilities received almost flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded Peabody an impressive grade of A in this category. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave the city an A- in our short-term care rating. Rounding out its phenomenal report card, we gave Peabody grades of A- and B+ for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
