There are just 2 nursing homes in Lacombe, Louisiana, providing for a population of 10,840 people. This city's nursing homes received an excellent city grade of A-, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the nearby city of Kenner a city grade of D, which is a far below average grade. Clearly, we found the facilities in Lacombe to be in a totally different league than the ones in Kenner. Topping off a great profile, this is the number one rated city in the state of Louisiana.
To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Lacombe an A+ for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. The city also performed extremely well in our long-term care category, where it received an A for that area. Rounding out its report card, this place were awarded a B+ for its nursing rating and a B in short-term care. This place really did not have any weak links as far as we could tell.
