There are three nursing homes in Bastrop, Louisiana, which at least gives you a few options. We gave this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B-, which is a solid grade. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of West Monroe, which received a city grade of D. While we not raving about either city, we found the facilities in Bastrop to be a better bet. One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its exemplary inspection grade, which is addressed in the following paragraph.
While its overall rating was fairly ordinary, the nursing homes in Bastrop performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, Bastrop received a B+ in our long-term care category. In our final two categories, the city earned rock bottom grades for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively.
