There are 9 nursing homes in Pueblo, Colorado, servicing a population of 151,815 people. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a great city score. This grade unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this city's profile is is its nursing grade. Nursing is discussed in the following paragraph.
It should also be noted that this city's nursing score was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we gave Pueblo a B in this area, which is one of our better grades. There are quite a few criteria within this area. Most of the subcategories are tied to levels of nurse staffing. In addition, Pueblo earned a grade of B for the city's inspection rating. Rounding out its profile, Pueblo received grades of B and D for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise impressive profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be a problem for some people.
