Newburgh, New York is a relatively small city with 54,447 people. The city features only one nursing home, which is less than we were hoping for. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't fare well in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of F, which is a terrible grade. Nationally, most nursing homes received a much higher score than this facility. Nevertheless, this facility surprisingly performed well in our inspections category, which you can find more information about below.
While its overall rating was terrible, we awarded this city's lone nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Turning to the next category, the city received grade of just D in the area of long-term care, which was its second best grade. In the other categories we looked at, we gave Newburgh terrible grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
