Russell, Kansas offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. The nursing homes in this city received a strong city grade of B+. Even with only a few facilities, this is still an impressive city grade. In fact, this ended up being the fourteenth best city in Kansas according to our ratings. Fortunately, this city's nursing homes didn't have any weak links in any of the four major categories. More information about these categories is available in the next section.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded Russell an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, we also awarded this city an A- for our long-term care category. Rounding out its report card, this place earned a B in our nursing category and a B in the area of short-term care. Russell really didn't have any weak links based on our assessment.
