Port Arthur, Texas is a small city with 53,986 people. The city has only one nursing home, which is not the selection we were hoping for. This facility received an overall grade of C, so it's likely not a bad option. This score unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. One of the best aspects of this facility's profile is its remarkable inspection score, which we will address in the following paragraph.
While its overall rating was not elite, we awarded this city's sole nursing home an A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility also fared well in the area of long-term care, where it earned a B+. In the other categories we looked at, Port Arthur received terrible grades for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
