With 174,375 people, Grand Prairie, Texas is relatively large metropolitan area. Shockingly, there is only one nursing home there. This facility earned an overall grade of C, so it may be worth considering. We also looked at the facilities in the nearby city of Red Oak. With Red Oak receiving a terrible city grade, we found the facility in Grand Prairie to be rated much higher than most of the facilities in Red Oak. One of the major highlights of this nursing home's report card is its remarkable inspection rating, which is addressed in the following section.
Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city's nursing home performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we awarded it one of our best grades in that category with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Grand Prairie's short-term care score appears to be its second best feature. We gave it a B- in this area. Finally, we gave the city middle of the road grades for our long-term care and nursing categories.
