Sleepy Eye, Minnesota has just two nursing homes to choose from, so you have relatively limited options. The nursing homes here received a top-notch city grade of A. Even with just a few nursing homes, this is still quite an accomplishment. By way of comparison, we gave the nursing homes in the local city of Mankato a city grade of B+, which is also a good score. Nevertheless, we found the facilities in Sleepy Eye to be rated slightly higher than the ones in Mankato. This is also one of the top ten rated cities in the state of Minnesota.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for this category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. In addition, we also wanted to point out that we awarded the city a grade of A for our nursing rating. Wrapping up its excellent report card, Sleepy Eye earned an A in our long-term care category and a B+ in short-term care.
