Pikeville, Kentucky offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. This city received a city grade of C based on its overall nursing home quality. This is not a great city score. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is well below average by national standards. One of the highlights of this place's profile is its nursing homes' strong inspection scores, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city received an inspection grade which is better than its overall grade. We awarded it a strong grade of B in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This city's second best category was long-term care, where it received a grade of B- in this area. Lastly, we awarded the city grades of C and D for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively. Even with an otherwise impressive performance, this city's poor short-term care score could be a problem for those looking for rehabilitation services.
