With four nursing homes in the city, you only have a couple of options in Lancaster, Texas. These facilities didn't really stand out from a quality point of view either. The city was awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger grades at the city level. We somewhat surprisingly found this city grade is better than the grade we gave the nearby city of Red Oak. With Red Oak receiving a terrible grade, Lancaster certainly appears to be a better bet. Please continue reading to find more information about how this city's nursing homes were rated in our category grades.
While its overall grade was somewhat average, we awarded this city an A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Lancaster received its next best grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-, which also isn't too bad. In the last two categories, Lancaster received a C in our nursing category and a grade of D for short-term care. In spite of otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor short-term care score may be a problem for those looking for rehabilitation services..
