Kilgore is a city with a population of 24,536 people. There are 2 nursing homes there to choose from.
The nursing homes in Kilgore received an awful overall grade, but we awarded it a B- in short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Surprisingly, we also gave Kilgore a grade of C for our long-term care rating. In the last two categories, the city were awarded a C for its nursing rating and a C in the area of inspections.
