Calvert City, Kentucky is a medium size city with 6,321 people. It has just 2 nursing homes, which doesn't provide you with too many choices. These facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad grade, but it is not quite as strong of a grade as we had hoped for either. For comparison's sake, we also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Paducah, which received a city grade of D. While we aren't raving about either city, we found the nursing homes in Calvert City to be slightly better. One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its remarkable inspection grade, which you can find in the next section.
This city received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really want to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city almost flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave it an elite grade of A in this area. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Calvert City earned a grade of B for our long-term care category. Lastly, we gave Calvert City terrible grades in our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
