With 53,040 people, Eagle Pass, Texas is a small city. There are only 3 nursing homes there, which doesn't offer you too many choices. We awarded the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which is not quite as strong of a score as we like. Nationally, most cities received a higher grade than this city. The best part of this place's profile was its nursing homes' remarkable inspection grades. We discuss inspections in the following paragraph.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, however, we really would like to point out that some of its facilities virtually flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded them an elite grade of A in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors 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 can be relatively minor. In addition, the city also performed remarkably well in the area of long-term care, where it received an A- for that area. Lastly, we awarded the city abysmal grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
