There are two facilities in Nevada, Iowa, which at least gives you a few options. The nursing homes in this city received a superb city grade of A. Even with only a few facilities, this is still quite an achievement. In fact, this place's city grade even surpassed the city grade of nursing homes in the local city of Urbandale. This is particularly impressive in light of the fact that we gave those nursing homes in Urbandale a city grade of A-, which is actually a good grade in its own right. On top of this, Nevada is also one of the top 250 cities in the United States.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for this category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. We also wanted to point out that we gave the city an A for our long-term care category. Wrapping up its excellent report card, this place were awarded a grade of A for nursing and a B for short-term care.
