Union City, New Jersey has only two nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. This city received a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a strong city grade. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its exemplary inspection score, which is addressed in the next section.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, we awarded Union City a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city received its next best score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C, which also isn't a bad grade. Lastly, Union City were awarded a grade of C for long-term care and a grade of D in the area of nursing. While we found most of its grades to be decent, this poor nursing rating is not a good sign for levels of nursing staffing.
