With just two nursing homes in the city, you only have a few options in Bath, New York. These nursing homes here earned this place a good city grade of B. By way of comparison, we gave the facilities in the local city of Fairport a city grade of C, which is a well below average grade. Although the two cities were relatively similar, we found the nursing homes in Bath to be a slightly better option. This place's nursing homes are stronger in some categories than others, but it did not have any bad scores in any of the four major categories. More information about these categories is available in the next paragraph.
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded Bath an A+ in our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, Bath also received strong nursing rating where it earned a B in this area. In the last two categories, this place earned a B- for its long-term care grade and a C in the area of short-term care.
