Sanford is a city with a population of 68,183 people. There are 2 nursing homes in the city to choose from.
Despite receiving a terrible overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed well in the area of short-term care. In fact, it earned one of our higher grades in that area with a B. Short-term care scores are crucial for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Surprisingly, we also gave Sanford a respectable grade of B- for our inspections rating. In the last two categories, we awarded the city alarmingly low grades in our nursing and long-term care categories respectively.
