While the nursing homes in Kokomo received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is higher than the city's overall score. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving strong inspection reports this year, we gave Kokomo one of our better scores in this area with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. The city also received strong short-term care score with a B in this category. In the last two categories, this place earned grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively. While we found the rest of its profile to be acceptable, this low nursing grade isn't a very good sign for levels of nursing staffing.
