We were able to identify just one nursing home in Ithaca, New York. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a phenomenal overall grade of A. In fact, Ithaca is ranked number 48 on our list of the best cities to find nursing homes in the nation. This is impressive considering we ranked thousands of cities around the country. Headlining this city's remarkable report card is its inspection score, which we will address in the next section.
This city's nursing home received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home also performed extremely well in our nursing category, where we awarded it an A+. Rounding out its excellent profile, this place received an A for its short-term care grade and a B+ in long-term care.
