With two nursing homes in the city, there are only a couple of choices in Antioch, Tennessee. We awarded this small group of nursing homes a city grade of B, which is a very solid rating. By way of comparison, we awarded the nursing homes in the local city of Clarksville a city grade of B-, which is also a decent score. However, we found the nursing homes in Antioch to be a slightly better bet than the ones in Clarksville. This city's strong profile was highlighted by its nursing homes' inspection grades, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
In addition to performing well in its overall grade, many of the nursing homes in Antioch performed remarkably well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded it one of our highest grades in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. The city also received an impressive long-term care score where it received a grade of B+ in this category. Rounding out its profile, this place earned grades of B and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. For the most part, this city's category scores were very strong, but its poor nursing grade may indicate lower levels of nurse staffing.
