Please continue reading to find more information about how this city's nursing homes were rated in our category grades.
This city received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really wanted to point out that some of the nursing homes in the city virtually flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded it an impressive grade of A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. The second best score we gave Lafayette in any area was its long-term care rating, where we awarded it a B-. Lastly, we gave the city abysmal grades in our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
