Center, Texas offers just three nursing homes to choose from, so you don't have too many options to choose from. We gave the nursing homes here city grade of C, which is not quite as high of a score as we had hoped for. This score is not necessarily the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. The best part of this city's profile was its nursing homes' exemplary inspection reports. We discuss inspections in the following section.
Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, the nursing homes in Center performed especially well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Center one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A-. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. The city also earned one of our higher scores in the area of long-term care, with a B. Lastly, we gave the city grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade in this range may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
