With a population of 6,502 , Colby, Kansas is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not offer you too many options to choose from. This small group of facilities earned on average an overall grade of B-, which is not a bad score for the city. This is just about average by national standards, which is nothing to be ashamed of. This city's report card is also very consistent as it did not receive a single weak category grade either. You can learn more about these in the next section.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its government inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, the city also received an impressive short-term care rating with a grade of B in this category. In our final two categories, we gave the city a grade of B- for long-term care and a B- in the area of nursing.
