There are just 2 nursing homes in Rockaway Park, New York, servicing a population of 20,408 people. We gave the nursing homes here city grade of C, which isn't as high of a grade as we had hoped for. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this place. The best part of this place's report card is its nursing homes' remarkable inspection scores. Inspection reports are discussed in the following section.
While its overall score was not elite, we awarded this city an A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Rockaway Park also received strong long-term care rating with a grade of B in this area. Finally, this place received abysmal grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
