Midland, Texas has only five nursing homes to choose from, which is a limited selection. We gave the nursing homes here city grade of C, which isn't as high of a grade as we had hoped for. This score unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. One of the better aspects of this place's profile is its nursing homes' strong inspection grades, which is addressed in the next paragraph.
This city's nursing homes' most impressive category grade came in the area of government inspections. In this category, we gave the city a B+. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Midland's second best grade came in long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Lastly, this place were awarded a C for its short-term care rating and a grade of D for nursing. In spite of an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing score this poor may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
