There are three nursing homes in Petersburg, Virginia, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a great grade at the city level. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Mechanicsville, which received a city grade of F. While we aren't raving about either city, we found the facilities in Petersburg to be a bit better. Fortunately, we were pleased to find one first-class nursing home here. You probably can't go wrong starting your search with this nursing home.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our better grades in this area, with a grade of B. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Petersburg's second best category was nursing, where it earned a B- in this area. In the last two categories, this place were awarded a C for its short-term care score and a grade of D in long-term care. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a long-term care rating in this range may be an issue for some people.
