Terre Haute, Indiana is a medium size city with 95,238 people. The city has only 4 nursing homes, which is fewer than we expected in a city of this size. This city received a city grade of C for an overall score. This is not a great city grade. Surprisingly, this city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of nursing homes in the nearby city of Danville, which received an abysmal city grade. We would advise you to be very selective in either city. 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. This city's next best grade was in our short-term care category, where Terre Haute received a B-. In our final two categories, the city received terrible grades for our long-term care and nursing areas respectively.
