Pottstown is a city with a population of 62,826 people. There are 2 nursing homes there for you to choose from.
While its overall grade was terrible, we actually awarded Pottstown a B for our inspections rating. This category obviously is not the reason for this place's alarming overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Surprisingly, this city performed decently in the area of nursing as well, where we gave it a B- for this category. In the last two categories, Pottstown received grades of C and D for our short-term care and long-term care areas respectively. Even with an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be concerning for some people.
