With just four nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of options in Suffolk, Virginia. These facilities did not really stand out from a quality perspective either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our better scores at the city level. This grade is below average by national standards. The best part of this city's report card was is its inspection rating. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection grade was better than its overall grade. In fact, we gave Suffolk a grade of B+ for its inspection grade, which is one of our better grades. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This city earned its second best score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which is also respectable. In the other categories we looked at, this place received slightly below average grades for our long-term care and nursing areas.
