There are three facilities in Livingston, New Jersey, so at least you have a few options to choose from. We awarded the nursing homes here a superb city grade of A. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still quite an accomplishment. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Westfield a city grade of C, which is a below average grade. Naturally, we found the nursing homes in Livingston to be in a totally different league than the ones in Westfield. Lastly, Livingston is also one of the top 250 cities in the entire nation.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, the nursing homes in Livingston performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded Livingston an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. In addition, we also awarded this city an A in our short-term care rating. Rounding out its straight A profile, Livingston earned an A- for its long-term care grade and a grade of A- in nursing.
