This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded East Orange an impressive grade of A for this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. The city also excelled in the category of long-term care with a grade of B+. In our final two categories, the city were awarded a C for its short-term care score and a C in nursing.
