With 33,640 people, Big Spring, Texas is a small city. There are just 3 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options to choose from. The relatively small group of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of C, which is not a great score at the city level. This grade is not the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. The best part of this place's report card was its nursing homes' remarkable inspection reports. Inspection reports are discussed in the following paragraph.
While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded this city an A- for our inspections rating. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Big Spring's next highest score came in long-term care, where it received a B-. Lastly, the city received a C in our short-term care category and a grade of D in nursing. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing score of this caliber may be an ominous sign for levels of nurse staffing.
