We also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Broken Arrow, which received a city grade of B-. WHile neither city really stood out, either city would likely be acceptable options for most people. This city is better in some categories than others, but it didn't have bad scores in any of our major areas discussed below. Additional information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
While this city's nursing homes received a decent overall grade, its inspection grade is notably better than its overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving favorable inspection reports this year, Tulsa received one of our better grades in this category with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. The city earned a grade of B in the area of long-term care. In our final two categories, Tulsa earned middle of the road grades in our nursing and short-term care categories.
