With a population of 25,125 people, Deridder, Louisiana is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes there, which doesn't provide you with too many options to choose from. With a city grade of B-, you should be able to find a decent nursing home here. We also looked at the nursing homes in the nearby city of Alexandria, which received a city grade of C. We found Deridder to be slightly better. The best part of this city's profile is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection grades. Inspection grades are discussed in the following paragraph.
This city received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really want to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A+ in this category. Our inspection grades are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. The city performed extremely well in our long-term care category as well. Consequently, we awarded it a grade of A- in this category. Lastly, Deridder earned rock bottom grades for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
