Lakewood, New Jersey offers only five nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. This place's nursing homes received a very good city grade of B+, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. This is a better score than the average city in the country. Fortunately, this place did not have any weak links in any of the major categories discussed below. Additional information about these categories can be found in the next paragraph.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's facilities received nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded Lakewood an elite grade of A+ in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Lakewood also performed remarkably well in the area of long-term care, where it received an A- for that category. Rounding out its strong report card, Lakewood received a B in our short-term care category and a grade of B in nursing. This place really did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
