There are two facilities in Carthage, Missouri, which at least gives you a few options to choose from. This relatively small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of B-. This is right about the middle of the road by national standards, which is perfectly respectable. The best part of this place's profile was its nursing homes' exemplary inspection grades. We discuss inspections in the following paragraph.
While its overall grade was not elite, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. The city also received an impressive long-term care rating where it earned a B in this area. Lastly, the city received grades of B- and D for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively. Despite an otherwise impressive performance, this place's poor short-term care score may be concerning for people looking for rehabilitation.
