With 62,197 people, Middletown, New York is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't offer you too many choices. This city's nursing homes were given a respectable city grade of B-. This is just about average by national standards, which is perfectly respectable. The best part of this city's profile is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection reports. We discuss inspections in the next section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, Middletown received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. We also wanted to point out that we awarded Middletown an A- for our long-term care rating. Finally, Middletown received terrible grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
