With 16,134 people, Jasper, Texas is a relatively small city. There are only 2 nursing homes in the city, which does not provide you with too many options. The small number of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong grade at the city level. As bad as this city's grade is, we shockingly found gave the nearby city of Orange an even worse score. With Orange receiving a terrible grade, we would advise you to tread carefully in either city. Looking at the individual facilities in Jasper, none of them really stood out. That being said, we were still able to find one respectable facility here.
While its overall score was somewhat average, we awarded Jasper a grade of A for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. In addition, the city earned a B+ in the area of long-term care. In the last two categories, we gave the city rock bottom grades for our nursing and short-term care categories respectively.
