We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B-, which is a respectable score. This is a middle of the pack grade compared to other cities in the United States. One of the best aspects of this city's report card is its exemplary inspection grade, which you can find in the next paragraph.
While its overall score was not elite, the nursing homes in Hazlet performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection scores are based on many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. In addition, the city earned a B for the city's long-term care rating. Lastly, this place were awarded a grade of B- for its short-term care grade and a grade of D in nursing. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing score of this caliber may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
