With 42,230 people, Huntington, New York is a small city. Unfortunately, there is just one nursing home there. We awarded the city's only nursing home a grade of B, which is a good grade. This should provide you with at least one decent option. This is as good or better than the city grade of most of the cities in the nation. This facility's strong profile was highlighted by its inspection grade, which we will address in the next section.
In addition to being a quality facility overall, this city's nursing home really excelled in the category of inspections, where we gave it an A. Not many places performed better in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This city also earned a B for the area of long-term care. In the other categories we looked at, Huntington received a B for short-term care and a C for nursing.
