There are two facilities in Centerville, Tennessee, which at least gives you a few options. The nursing homes here received a world class city grade of A-. Even with only a few facilities, this is still quite an accomplishment. In fact, this place's city grade even surpassed the city grade of facilities in the nearby city of Murfreesboro. This is especially impressive in light of the fact that we gave those nursing homes in Murfreesboro a city grade of B, which is actually a good grade in its own right. We were so impressed with this city that we rated it as one of the top 500 cities in the entire country.
This city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's facilities received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Centerville an impressive grade of A+ for this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, Centerville also really excelled in the area of long-term care, where we gave it an A-. Rounding out its profile, this place received a grade of B for its nursing score and a B in short-term care. This place did not have any weak links based on our assessment.
