Our data for Lockport, New York is based on a single nursing home we found in the city. We awarded the city's only nursing home a grade of B-, which is a a decent score. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Tonawanda. With Tonawanda receiving a terrible city grade, we found the nursing home in Lockport to be in a totally different league than most of the nursing homes in Tonawanda. One of the major highlights of this facility's report card is its stellar inspection grade, which you can find in the next paragraph.
This city's sole nursing home received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A+ in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Lockport received its second highest score in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this category, which is respectable. Finally, Lockport received grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively. Although we found the rest of its profile to be acceptable, this nursing grade isn't a good sign for nursing staffing levels.
