With a population of 67,052 people, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania is a relatively small city. There are just 4 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't provide you with too many choices. The nursing homes in this city received an excellent city grade of B+. Even with only a few nursing homes, this is still an impressive city grade. We also wanted to point out that this place's city grade was even better than the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Hagerstown. The best aspect of this city's impressive profile was its nursing homes' inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Mechanicsburg performed remarkably well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, Mechanicsburg received one of our highest ratings in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. In addition, Mechanicsburg performed remarkably well in the area of short-term care as well. As a result, the city received an A- in this category. In the other categories we looked at, Mechanicsburg earned a B for its nursing score and a grade of B- in the area of long-term care.
