With two nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Smethport, Pennsylvania. We awarded the nursing homes here an excellent city grade of B+. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still a high quality city grade. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Jamestown, which received a city grade of C. We found Smethport to be on a whole other level. This city's profile is also very consistent as it did not receive a single poor category grade either. You can find more information about these in the next section.
To go along with its great overall grade, we awarded this city a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. The city also performed extremely well in our nursing category, where it earned an A- for this area. In our final two categories, this place received middle of the road grades for our long-term care and short-term care categories.
