Chesapeake is a city with a population of 222,272 people. There are 4 nursing homes in the city to choose from.
Despite receiving an abysmal overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed well in our inspections category. In fact, many of the nursing homes here received strong government inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Chesapeake one of our better scores in that area with a B. Our inspection grades are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. We also wanted to acknowledge that we gave Chesapeake a grade of B- in our long-term care category. In the last two categories, this place received a grade of C for its short-term care grade and a grade of D in nursing. Even with an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing score in this range may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
