There are two nursing homes in Hampton, Iowa, which at least gives you a few choices. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a world class city grade of A-. Even with just a couple of nursing homes, this is still a great achievement. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the nearby city of Waterloo a city grade of B-, which is not a bad grade. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Hampton to be in a totally different league than the ones in Waterloo. Lastly, this city's category grades were just as impressive as its city grade. You can read more about these in the next section.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the facilities in Hampton performed extremely well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, the city received one of our best grades in that category with an A+. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We also wanted to point out that we awarded the city an A in our nursing rating. Rounding out its report card, we gave the city a B+ for short-term care and a B+ in the area of long-term care. We truly found this city to be strong in every category.
