With 21,329 people, Middletown, Pennsylvania is a small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't offer you too many choices. These nursing homes did not really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. This grade is below average by national standards. The best part of this city's profile was its nursing homes' exemplary inspection reports. We discuss inspections in the following paragraph.
While its overall grade was not elite, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This city's second highest score came in nursing, where it earned a C. In the other categories we looked at, the city were awarded a C for long-term care and a grade of D in the area of short-term care. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor short-term care rating may be a concern for people who need rehabilitation.
