Jasper, Texas offers just two nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. This small group of nursing homes in this city received a city grade of B-. We actually found this city grade is better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Orange. With Orange receiving a terrible grade, Jasper certainly appears to be a better option. The best part of this place's report card was its nursing homes' stellar inspection ratings. Inspection reports are discussed in the next paragraph.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, this city performed spectacularly well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Jasper earned a B+ for our long-term care category. In the other categories we looked at, Jasper earned a C for its nursing rating and a grade of C for short-term care.
