Portsmouth is a city with a population of 95,535 people. There are 3 nursing homes in the city for you to choose from.
While its overall grade was abysmal, we actually awarded this city's nursing homes a B+ for our inspections rating. This category obviously was not the reason for this place's alarming overall grade. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. Surprisingly, Portsmouth also performed decently in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a C in this area. Finally, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing rating this poor may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
