There are three facilities in Cresco, Iowa, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The nursing homes here received a very good city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of nursing homes, this is still a great sign. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Winona, which received a decent city grade in its own right. However, we found the nursing homes in Cresco to be rated a bit higher than the ones in Winona. We were pleased to find one really elite nursing home here. You probably can not go wrong starting your search with this nursing home.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, many of the facilities in Cresco performed remarkably well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received nearly perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, the city received one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we gave Cresco an A- for our long-term care category. Wrapping up its strong profile, this place earned a grade of B+ for its nursing grade and a grade of B in short-term care. This city did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
