With just two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options to choose from in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania. This city received a respectable city grade of B- based on the quality of its nursing homes. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of New Kensington a city grade of F, which is a well below average score. While neither city received a glowing review, we found the nursing homes in Beaver Falls to be a better option. One of the best aspects of this city's profile is its remarkable inspection reports, which we will address in the following paragraph.
Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed especially well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, Beaver Falls received one of our highest scores in that area with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This city earned its next highest score in the area of nursing, where we gave it a B-, which also isn't too bad. In the other categories we looked at, we gave Beaver Falls grades of B- and D for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a long-term care rating in this range may be a problem for some people.
