There are three facilities in San Marcos, Texas, which at least gives you a few choices. This relatively small group of nursing homes in this city received a solid city grade of B-. This city's city grade was a bit better than the city grade of facilities in the local city of Pflugerville, which received an awful city grade. If choosing between the two, San Marcos looks like a better bet. One of the major highlights of this city's profile is its stellar inspection reports, which we will address in the following section.
This city's nursing homes received a fairly ordinary overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize that some of the nursing homes in the city almost perfect health inspections the past few years. We awarded it an elite grade of A- in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, San Marcos also received one of our better scores in the area of long-term care, with a grade of B+. In the other categories we looked at, this place received grades of B- and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade in this range may be an ominous sign for levels of nurse staffing.
