Covington, Louisiana offers only two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We awarded the nursing homes in this city a top-notch city grade of A-. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still quite an achievement. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the local city of Gretna a city grade of D, which is a far below average grade. Naturally, we found the facilities in Covington to be on a whole other level than the ones in Gretna. In addition, Covington is also one of the 500 best cities in the entire country.
To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Covington a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. The city also performed spectacularly well in our long-term care category, with an A for that area. Finally, this place earned a B+ for its nursing score and a B- in short-term care.
