There are four nursing homes in Sulphur Springs, Texas, which at least gives you a few choices. These nursing homes did not really stand out from a quality perspective either. The city received a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger grades at the city level. This score unfortunately ended up on the wrong side of the national average. One of the highlights of this city's report card is its nursing homes' strong inspection grades, which is addressed in the next section.
This city's nursing homes' overall grade was propped up by its government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in this area, with a grade of B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. The city earned a B for our long-term care category. Lastly, this place earned a C for its short-term care rating and a grade of D in the area of nursing. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating of this caliber may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
