There are three nursing homes in Ambler, Pennsylvania, which at least gives you a few choices. We gave the nursing homes here a superb city grade of A-. Even with just a couple of facilities, this is still quite an accomplishment. This city has the distinction of being one of the twenty five highest rated cities in all of Pennsylvania. This datapoint is also a reminder that Pennsylvania has plenty of cities with high quality facilities. This place's strong report card was highlighted by its nursing homes' inspection reports, which you can find in the next paragraph.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Ambler one of our highest scores in that area with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. In addition, we also awarded Ambler a grade of A- in our short-term care category. Rounding out its quality profile, we gave the city a B+ in our long-term care category and a B for nursing. We really found Ambler to be competent everywhere we looked.
