With just three nursing homes in the city, you only have a few options to choose from in Elizabeth, New Jersey. This place's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+, so what this place lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Newark, which received an impressive city grade in its own right. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Elizabeth to be even better than the ones in Newark. This city's nursing homes were better in some categories than others, but it didn't have any bad scores in any of our major categories. Additional information about these categories can be found in the next section.
On top of having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where we gave it an A+. Few cities fared this well in this area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. In addition, Elizabeth performed extremely well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. As a result, we awarded Elizabeth an A- in this category. In our final two categories, the city received a grade of B for its nursing rating and a grade of B- in the area of short-term care.
