Canandaigua, New York has only three nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a great city grade. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this place. One of the best aspects of this city's report card is its exemplary inspection grade, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, this city performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area generally have very few severe deficiencies. This city's next best category is long-term care, where it received a C in this category. Finally, Canandaigua earned grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing score this poor may be an ominous sign for levels of nurse staffing.
