Shenandoah, Iowa offers only two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. This small group of facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of B, which is a very solid grade for the city. This is an average city grade nationally, which is perfectly respectable. This place's nursing homes are stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have any poor grades in any of our major categories. Additional information about these categories can be found in the next section.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed especially well in the category of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, it received one of our best scores in that category with a grade of A-. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. The city earned a grade of B for our short-term care category. In our final two categories, Shenandoah earned slightly below average grades for our long-term care and nursing categories.
