There are two facilities in West Babylon, New York, which at least gives you a few options to choose from. We gave this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a good grade. This is as good or better than the city grade of most of the cities in the nation. You can continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
As mentioned above, this city received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to emphasize that some of its nursing homes received virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded West Babylon an impressive grade of A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. We also awarded West Babylon an A- in our long-term care rating. In our final two categories, the city were awarded a B- for its short-term care grade and a C in the area of nursing.
