Decatur is a city with a population of 15,587 people. There are 2 nursing homes there to choose from.
The nursing homes in Decatur received a terrible overall grade, however, we wanted to point out the city's decent government inspections the past few years. We awarded them a grade of B- in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Surprisingly, Decatur also performed respectably in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B- in this category. Finally, the city earned grades of C and F for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
