Port Chester, New York is a small city with 38,352 people. It has only one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. This nursing home was awarded an overall grade of B, which is a quality score. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Bronx. We found the facility in Port Chester to be a better bet than most of the nursing homes in Bronx. The best part of this facility's impressive profile was its inspection score. We discuss inspections in the next paragraph
To go along with its great overall grade, we awarded this city's sole nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility also earned a B+ for its short-term care rating. Wrapping up its report card, this place received grades of B and D for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively. For the most part, this city's category grades were very strong, but this weak nursing rating may suggest some staffing shortages.
