Glasgow, Kentucky is a small city with 30,349 people. The city has 5 nursing homes, which is a decent selection for a city of this size. The nursing homes here received a strong city grade of B+. Even with only a couple of nursing homes, this is still a high quality city grade. In fact, this place's city grade was far better than the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Gallatin. While there's nothing wrong with this grade, we found Glasgow to be in a totally different league. This is also one of the ten highest rated cities in the state of Kentucky.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the nursing homes in Glasgow performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. Consequently, the city received one of our highest scores in that area with an A+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, the city earned a B+ for the city's long-term care rating. Rounding out its impressive report card, Glasgow received a grade of B for nursing and a B for short-term care. This city really did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
