Terre Haute, Indiana is a medium size city with 95,238 people. The city has 9 nursing homes, which is a reasonable number for a city of this size. We gave this city a city grade of C based on the quality of its nursing homes. This is not a strong city grade. This city's city grade narrowly surpassed the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Danville, which received a terrible city grade. If choosing between the two, Terre Haute looks like a better bet. The best part of this city's profile is is its inspection rating. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection score was better than its overall grade. In fact, we gave Terre Haute a B+ for its inspection rating, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. The city also received one of our higher grades in our short-term care category, with a B. In the last two categories, Terre Haute were awarded a B- for its nursing score and a grade of D in long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this city's poor long-term care rating may be concerning for many people.
