El Paso is a city with a population of 746,640 people. There are 20 nursing homes there to choose from.
While the city's overall rating was awful, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Surprisingly, El Paso performed decently in the area of long-term care as well, where we gave it a C for this category. Finally, the city received grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing grade of this caliber may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
