With Lancaster receiving an awful city grade, we found the nursing home in Rockwall to be in a totally different league than most of the facilities in Lancaster. You may be satisfied with this facility. If you are looking for other options, you're just going to have to look in other cities.
While its overall score was somewhat average, this city's sole nursing home performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This place also fared well in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B+. In our final two categories, Rockwall received a C for its nursing rating and a grade of D in short-term care. Even with otherwise respectable category grades, this place's weak short-term care grade could be a problem for people looking for rehabilitation..
