With a population of 9,051 , Jonesboro, Louisiana is a small city. There are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not give you too many options. This place's nursing homes were given a decent city grade of B-. This place's city grade narrowly surpassed the city grade of facilities in the local city of West Monroe. While the nursing homes in West Monroe are not terrible, we found Jonesboro to be a better option. One of the best aspects of this place's report card is its exemplary inspection score, which is addressed in the next section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed spectacularly well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, Jonesboro received one of our highest scores in that area with a grade of A. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, we also awarded this city a grade of A- in our long-term care rating. Lastly, this place received a C in our nursing category and a grade of D for short-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this city's weak short-term care score may be a concern for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation services..
