We assessed the only nursing home in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. This facility was awarded an overall grade of B, which is a very solid grade. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Phoenixville. We found the nursing home in Downingtown to be a better bet than most of the nursing homes in Phoenixville. While this looks like a fine option, we wouldn't blame you if you want to explore nursing homes in other cities.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city's nursing home performed extremely well in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. Consequently, we awarded it one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility also earned an impressive long-term care score. We gave it a grade of B+ in this category. Wrapping up its report card, Downingtown received grades of B and D for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively. Generally speaking, we were impressed with this place's grades, but it really struggled in our short-term care category. This may be an issue for people looking for a rehabilitation facility in the city.
