Bristol is a city with a population of 22,938 people. There are 2 nursing homes in the city to choose from.
Despite receiving an abysmal overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed better in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B- in that category. In determining these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Surprisingly, Bristol also performed better in our inspections category, where it received a decent inspection report this year. It received a grade of C in that category. In our final two categories, we gave the city a grade of C for its nursing grade and a grade of C in the area of long-term care.
