There are only 2 nursing homes in West Deptford, New Jersey, servicing a relatively small population of 36,116 people. The small number of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Williamstown. With Williamstown receiving such an awful grade, West Deptford certainly appears to be a better option. In particular, we wanted to make you aware that there is one above average facility in the city. This is most likely where we would begin our search in this city.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded West Deptford an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. In addition, the city also received an impressive short-term care rating with a grade of B in this area. In the last two categories, West Deptford received grades of B- and F for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this place's poor long-term care rating may be a concern for many people.
