Homer, Louisiana is a medium size city with 10,268 people. It features just 2 nursing homes, which doesn't provide you with too many options to choose from. Unfortunately, we awarded the nursing homes here city grade of D, which is an abysmal score at the city level. We looked at the individual nursing homes in the city and we didn't see any great options as not a single nursing home here received an above average grade. We don't have many positive things to say about this city's nursing homes, but they did receive surprisingly strong inspection grades. You can continue reading to learn more about this.
Despite receiving an abysmal overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed favorably in the area of inspections. In fact, many of its facilities received relatively impressive inspection reports this year. Consequently, Homer received one of our higher scores in that category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Surprisingly, Homer also performed respectably in the area of long-term care, where it earned a B- in that area. In the other categories we looked at, the city earned rock bottom grades for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
