With three nursing homes in the city, there are only a few choices in North Bergen, New Jersey. The nursing homes here received a world class city grade of A-. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. This is a well above average grade with the vast majority of places receiving a lower score. The best aspect of this city's strong profile is its nursing homes' inspection grades. We discuss inspections in the next section
As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received almost perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded North Bergen an elite grade of A for this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. North Bergen received a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. Rounding out its report card, North Bergen received favorable grades in our nursing and short-term care categories as well.
