With just two nursing homes in the city, there are only a few options to choose from in Penn Yan, New York. The nursing homes here received an excellent city grade of A-. Even with only a couple of facilities, this is still quite an achievement. By way of comparison, we awarded the facilities in the nearby city of Rochester a city grade of B-, which is not a bad grade. However, we found the nursing homes in Penn Yan to be on a whole other level than the ones in Rochester. This city's profile was also consistent as it did not receive a single poor category grade either. You can learn more about these in the next section.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this city an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. In addition, Penn Yan also fared well in the category of long-term care with a B+. In our final two categories, we gave the city slightly below average grades for our nursing and short-term care categories.
