With four nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Long Beach, New York. This relatively small group of nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of B-, which isn't a bad score for the city. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade was better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Massapequa. With Massapequa receiving an awful grade, Long Beach certainly appears to be a better bet.

This city's nursing homes received a somewhat average overall grade, however, we really wanted to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city almost perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded it an elite grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This city's next best category was long-term care, where we gave it a B- in this category. In the last two categories, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating in this range may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
