With 7,607 people, Pana, Illinois is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which does not give you too many choices. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a strong city grade. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this city. One of the better aspects of this city's profile is its nursing homes' impressive inspection reports, which you can find in the following paragraph.
While this city received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is notably more impressive than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its facilities receiving favorable inspection reports this year, Pana received one of our higher grades in that area with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Pana received its second best grade in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a C, which also isn't a bad grade. In the last two categories, the city earned grades of C and D for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively. Despite an otherwise impressive performance, this place's poor short-term care score could be a problem for prospective residents who need rehabilitation services.
