There are four nursing homes in Petersburg, Virginia, so at least you have a few choices. We gave the nursing homes here city grade of C, which is not as high of a score as we had hoped for. This grade is not necessarily 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 were rated in our category grades.
We wanted to note that this city's inspection score was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Petersburg a B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our higher scores. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. The second highest grade we gave Petersburg in any area was its short-term care grade, where it earned a grade of C. Finally, Petersburg received middle of the road grades in our nursing and long-term care areas.
