Plaquemine is a city with a population of 17,584 people. There are 2 nursing homes there to choose from.
While its overall rating was abysmal, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded Plaquemine an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have too many severe deficiencies. Surprisingly, we also gave this city a respectable grade of B- for our long-term care rating. In the last two categories, we gave Plaquemine rock bottom grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
