Hempstead, New York has just three nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. These nursing homes didn't really excel from a quality perspective either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger scores at the city level. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the local city of East Meadow a city grade of D, which is a very poor grade. While neither city received a rave review, we found the nursing homes in Hempstead to be a better option. One of the best aspects of this place's profile is its stellar inspection reports, which we will address in the following section.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city a grade of A for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. In addition, Hempstead earned a grade of B+ for the city's long-term care rating. Lastly, Hempstead received rock bottom grades for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
