There are two nursing homes in Cherokee, Iowa, so at least you have a few options to choose from. This relatively small group of facilities received on average an overall grade of B-, which is a respectable score for the city. This is just about average by national standards, which is perfectly respectable. Finally, this city's nursing homes received consistent grades in each of our categories. More information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
While its overall score was fairly ordinary, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Cherokee's second best category was long-term care, where we gave it a B- in this category. In the last two categories, we gave Cherokee middle of the pack grades in our nursing and short-term care categories.
