We wanted to note that this city's inspection rating was better than its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Lake Jackson a B+ for its inspection score, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This city received its next best grade in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which also isn't too bad. Finally, the city were awarded a grade of C for its short-term care rating and a grade of F for nursing. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing score in this range may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
