This city received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really would like to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city virtually perfect health inspections in recent years.

One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category generally have very few severe deficiencies.

In the other categories we looked at, Farmington received a grade of B- in our short-term care category and a C in the area of nursing.
