There is only one nursing home in Carlsbad, New Mexico, providing for a relatively small population of 33,725 people. We were relieved to discover that its only nursing home received a superb overall grade of A-. We were so impressed with Carlsbad that we ranked it as the number one rated city in all of New Mexico. This facility's impressive profile was highlighted by its inspection grade, which you can find in the next section.
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city's lone nursing home a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We also awarded this facility an A- for our short-term care category. Wrapping up its report card, Carlsbad earned favorable scores for our long-term care and nursing areas as well.
