With three nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options to choose from in Dexter, Missouri. The nursing homes in this city received a strong city grade of B+. Even with just a couple of nursing homes, this is still an impressive city grade. In fact, this place's city grade far surpassed the city grade of facilities in the local city of Poplar Bluff. While there's nothing wrong with the nursing homes in Poplar Bluff, we found Dexter to be on a whole other level. Lastly, Dexter has the distinction of being one of the ten highest rated cities in all of Missouri.
In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this city performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area tend to have few severe deficiencies. In addition, Dexter performed especially well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. Consequently, the city received a grade of A- in that category. Finally, the city earned middle of the road grades for our nursing and short-term care categories.
