With a population of 26,601 people, Ennis, Texas is a small city. There are only 3 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many options to choose from. These facilities earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad grade, but it isn't as strong of a score as we like to see either. This grade unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of the national average. The best part of this city's profile is its nursing homes' stellar inspection scores. Inspection grades are discussed in the following section.
While its overall rating was not elite, we awarded Ennis an A- for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This city's second best grade was in the area of long-term care, where Ennis received a grade of B-. Finally, we gave the city grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade in this range may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
