With 37,972 people, Bridgewater, New Jersey is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many choices. This city's nursing homes received a top-notch city grade of A, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. In fact, this city's city grade even surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Monroe Township. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that we gave those facilities in Monroe Township a city grade of B+, which is a good grade in its own right. On top of this, this city has the distinction of being one of the top three rated cities in all of New Jersey.
This city's nursing homes received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded Bridgewater an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, we also wanted to point out that we awarded Bridgewater an A for our short-term care category. Rounding out its phenomenal report card, we awarded the city grades of A and B+ for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
