With nine nursing homes in the city, there are a decent number of facilities in Beaumont, Texas. These facilities were awarded on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad score, but it is not as high of a grade as we like to see either. For comparison's sake, we also assessed the facilities in the nearby city of Orange, which received a city grade of F. While we gave both cites terrible grades, we found the facilities in Beaumont to be slightly better.

This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its impressive health inspections in recent years. We gave the city one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This city's next best category was long-term care, where it received a grade of B- in this area. Finally, Beaumont were awarded a C for its short-term care grade and a grade of D for nursing. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing score this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
