Las Cruces is a city with a population of 143,900 people. There are 3 nursing homes there to choose from.
While its overall score was terrible, we actually awarded this city's nursing homes a grade of B for our nursing rating. This category clearly wasn't the reason for this city's concerning overall grade. There are quite a few criteria within this grade. Many of these subcategories are tied to staffing levels. Shockingly, the city also performed favorably in the area of short-term care, where it received a B for that category. In our final two categories, Las Cruces earned terrible grades in our inspections and long-term care areas respectively. It goes without saying that this city's long-term care score really pulled down its overall grade.
