With four nursing homes in the city, you only have a few options to choose from in Odessa, Texas. These nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad grade, but it is not as strong of a grade as we like to see either. This score is not the end of the world, but it is definitely below average by national standards. The best part of this place's report card is its nursing homes' exemplary inspection grades. We discuss inspections in the next paragraph.
While its overall score was fairly ordinary, we awarded Odessa an A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. In addition, Odessa earned a B in the area of long-term care. In the last two categories, we awarded the city abysmal grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
