To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Eunice a grade of A for our inspections category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, the city performed remarkably well in our long-term care category as well. As a result, we awarded it a grade of A in that area. In our final two categories, Eunice received terrible grades in our nursing and short-term care areas respectively. We were surprised by this city's poor grades in these areas. A short-term care grade in this range is a particularly poor sign for the city's rehabilitation services.
