There are four nursing homes in Lubbock, Texas, so at least you have a few options to choose from. The relatively small group of nursing homes here received a city grade of C, which is not a strong score at the city level. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this place. The best part of this place's report card is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection ratings. Inspection reports are discussed in the following paragraph.
This city received a somewhat average overall grade, however, we really wanted to emphasize that some of its facilities nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Inspections appears to be Lubbock's second best grade. The city earned a B- in this area. Finally, Lubbock earned grades of C and D for our short-term care and nursing areas respectively. Despite an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing rating this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
