Mechanicsville, Virginia has only three nursing homes to choose from, which is not a ton of options. The small number of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. This grade is not the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards. Please continue reading to find more information about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This city earned its next best score in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-, which is also a decent grade. In our final two categories, we gave the city a grade of C for its short-term care grade and a C in nursing.
