There are three nursing homes in Ruston, Louisiana, so at least you have a few options. These nursing homes did not really excel from a quality point of view either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our better grades at the city level. This score is not the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. One of the best aspects of this place's profile is its exemplary inspection reports, which we will address in the following section.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really want to emphasize that some of its facilities nearly perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection ratings are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. In addition, Ruston also received one of our better scores in the area of long-term care, with a B. In the last two categories, we gave the city abysmal grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
