With just three nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of choices in Reno, Nevada. We gave this city a respectable city grade of B- for an overall score. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Sparks, which received a below average city grade of C. While neither city received an elite score, Reno looks like the better option. The best part of this city's report card is is its short-term care score. Short-term care grades are discussed in the next section.
While this city received a middle of the road overall grade, its short-term care rating is notably more impressive than the city's overall score. We gave Reno one of our higher scores in this category with a grade of B+. Short-term care grades of this caliber are a great sign for the levels of physical and occupational therapy staffing at the nursing homes in a city. In addition, Reno also received favorable health inspections in recent years. As a result, we gave them one of our better grades in this category, with a B. In the last two categories, this place were awarded a B- in our nursing category and a grade of D in long-term care. In spite of an otherwise respectable performance, this place's poor long-term care score may be an issue for many prospective residents.
