There are just 2 nursing homes in Gloversville, New York, providing for a relatively small population of 23,773 people. These facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad grade, but it isn't quite as high of a grade as we like to see either. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this city. One of the highlights of this place's profile is its nursing homes' strong inspection grades, which you can find in the next section.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection rating outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we gave Gloversville a B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our higher scores. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city earned its second highest grade in the area of nursing, where we gave it a B-, which is also a decent grade. In the other categories we looked at, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be a problem for some prospective residents.
