West Haverstraw, New York has just two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. Despite only having a couple of nursing homes, this city received a phenomenal city grade of A+. In fact, this place's city grade was far better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Paterson. This is especially impressive in light of the fact that we gave those nursing homes in Paterson a city grade of A-, which is actually a good grade in its own right. One of the best aspects of this place's remarkable report card is its nursing homes' inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city an A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. We also wanted to emphasize that we gave West Haverstraw an A+ in our short-term care category. Rounding out its straight A report card, this place received an A for its long-term care rating and an A for nursing.
