With 28,790 people, Johnston, Rhode Island is a relatively small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options. This place's nursing homes received a top-notch city grade of A-, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Woonsocket. We found the nursing homes in Johnston to be rated much higher than the ones in Woonsocket. We were so impressed with this city that we rated it as one of the top 500 cities in the nation.
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this city really excelled in the area of inspections, where we gave it an A. Very few cities performed better in this category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We also wanted to point out that we awarded Johnston an A- for our nursing category. Rounding out its impressive report card, Johnston received a B+ in our short-term care category and a grade of B in the area of long-term care. We found this city to be very strong in every category.
