Rockport, Texas is a medium size city with 19,364 people. The city has only 2 nursing homes, which does not provide you with too many options to choose from. We gave the nursing homes in this city city grade of C, which isn't as strong of a score as we had hoped for. This grade unfortunately is on the wrong side of the national average. Please continue reading to learn more about how this city's nursing homes fared in our category grades.
It should also be noted that this city's inspection rating was better than its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Rockport a grade of B+ for its inspection score, which is one of our higher grades. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, the city earned a B for our long-term care category. In our final two categories, Rockport earned a grade of C for its short-term care rating and a grade of F for nursing. Even with an otherwise respectable profile, a nursing rating in this range may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
