Pittston, Pennsylvania is a small city with 36,875 people. It has only one nursing home, which is less than we were hoping for. We gave the city's sole nursing home a grade of C, so it may be worth looking at. This score is below average by national standards. You may be content with this place. If you are looking for additional options, you're just going to have to look at other cities.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing home performed extremely well in our inspections category. In fact, it received a nearly perfect inspection report this year. Consequently, we awarded it one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Pittston's second best category was long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. In our final two categories, we gave Pittston middle of the pack grades for our short-term care and nursing categories.
