Du Bois, Pennsylvania has only two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. These facilities did not really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger grades at the city level. We found that most cities received a B or higher, leaving this city on the wrong side of average. The best part of this city's report card was its nursing homes' stellar inspection ratings. Inspection reports are discussed in the next paragraph.
This city received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really would like to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. The next highest score we gave this city in any area was its short-term care score, where we gave it a C. Finally, the city earned grades of C and D for our nursing and long-term care categories respectively. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care score could be a concern for many prospective residents.
