With seven options to choose from, there are a decent number of facilities in Texarkana, Texas. This place's nursing homes were awarded a city grade of C, which is not one of our stronger scores at the city level. Nationally, most cities received a higher score than this place. Fortunately, there is one really elite facility in Texarkana. This is most likely where we would begin our search in this city.
We wanted to note that this city's inspection score was better than its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Texarkana a grade of B+ for its inspection rating, which is one of our higher scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. Texarkana earned its second best grade in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which is also a decent grade. Finally, we gave the city grades of C and D for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively. Even with an otherwise impressive performance, this place's poor short-term care rating could be concerning for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation services.
