With five nursing homes in the city, you only have a few choices in Anderson, Indiana. These facilities received on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad score, but it isn't quite as strong of a grade as we like to see either. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Indianapolis, which received a below average city grade of C. These cities appear to be comparable, with neither receiving very strong grades. One of the major highlights of this place's report card is its remarkable inspection score, which we will address in the following section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in Anderson performed spectacularly well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. As a result, Anderson received one of our highest ratings in that category with an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This city's second highest score came in our short-term care category, where Anderson received a grade of B-. In the other categories we looked at, the city earned rock bottom grades in our nursing and long-term care areas respectively.
