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. On top of this, Sleepy Eye turned out to be the fifth best city in the state of Minnesota according to our ratings.
As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities received almost flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded Sleepy Eye an elite grade of A for this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. In addition, the city performed extremely well in our nursing category as well. As a result, it received an A in this category. Wrapping up its top notch profile, the city were awarded an A- for its long-term care grade and a B+ in the area of short-term care.
