With two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of choices in Auburn, Indiana. We gave this city a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a great city grade. This score unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this place's profile is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This city received its second highest score in the category of nursing, where we gave it a B-, which also isn't too bad. In the last two categories, we awarded the city grades of C and F for our short-term care and long-term care categories respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a long-term care rating of this caliber may be a problem for some prospective residents.
