With 39,150 people, Whitestone, New York is a relatively small city. Unfortunately, there is just one nursing home in the city. We gave the city's only nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth considering. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. One of the best aspects of this facility's report card is its exemplary inspection reports, which you can find in the following paragraph.
While its overall score was fairly ordinary, this city's sole nursing home performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home also really excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of A-. In our final two categories, Whitestone received alarmingly low grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
