This city received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really would like to emphasize that some of its facilities almost flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an elite grade of A- in this area. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Northfield's second best score was in our short-term care category, where it earned a grade of C. In our final two categories, we gave the city grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively. While we found its other categories to be decent, this poor nursing grade is not a great sign for levels of nursing staffing.
