Alamo, Texas is a relatively small city with 33,722 people. The city has only one nursing home, which is less than we were hoping for. We awarded the city's only nursing home a grade of B-, which is a a respectable rating. This is a middle of the road grade compared to other places in the nation. The best part of this nursing home's report card was its remarkable inspection score. Inspection grades are discussed in the next paragraph.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, we awarded this city's lone nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility also earned a B+ for its long-term care rating. In the last two categories, Alamo earned grades of C and F for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating in this range may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
