Our data for Hermitage, Tennessee is based on a single nursing home we found in the city. We awarded the city's only nursing home a grade of B-, which is a a decent score. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the nursing homes in the nearby city of Shelbyville. With Shelbyville receiving a terrible city grade, we found the nursing home in Hermitage to be in a totally different league than most of the nursing homes in Shelbyville. One of the major highlights of this facility's report card is its stellar inspection grade, which you can find in the next paragraph.
This city's sole nursing home received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an elite grade of A- in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility also received one of our higher scores in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B. Finally, we awarded the city middle of the pack grades for our nursing and short-term care categories.
