There are four facilities in Albany, New York, so at least you have a few options. This city received a city grade of C for an overall score. This is not a great city score. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this city. The best part of this place's profile was is its inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
While the nursing homes in Albany received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is higher than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving strong inspection reports this year, we gave Albany one of our higher grades in that category with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Inspections is this city's second best grade. The city received a B- in this category. In the last two categories, this place earned grades of C and D for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively. Even with otherwise strong category grades, this city's weak short-term care rating may be a concern for people looking for rehabilitation services.
