With a population of 11,263 , Rusk, Texas is a relatively small city. There are just 2 nursing homes in the city, which doesn't give you too many choices. These nursing homes earned on average an overall grade of C. This isn't a bad score, but it isn't as high of a grade as we like to see either. We found that most cities received a B or higher, leaving this city on the wrong side of average. The best part of this city's report card is is its inspection score. Inspection reports are discussed in the following section.
This city's overall grade was propped up by its favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. Inspections is this city's next best category. It received a B- in this area. In our final two categories, we gave the city grades of C and D for our long-term care and nursing categories respectively. While we found most of its grades to be respectable, this low nursing rating isn't a very good sign for nursing staffing levels.
