We assessed the only nursing home in Mount Vernon, New York. We awarded the city's lone nursing home a grade of B-, which is a a solid grade. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Great Neck. With Great Neck receiving a terrible city grade, we found the facility in Mount Vernon to be rated much higher than most of the nursing homes in Great Neck. Although this probably isn't a bad option, we would not blame you if you want to explore nursing homes in other cities.
This city's nursing home received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really wanted to emphasize its nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This facility also fared well in the area of short-term care, where it earned a grade of B+. In our final two categories, Mount Vernon received abysmal grades for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively.
