With a population of 69,012 people, Casper, Wyoming is a small city. There are just 3 nursing homes there, which doesn't give you too many options. We awarded this relatively small group of nursing homes a city grade of B-, which is a decent rating. This city is one of the top five cities in the state according to our rankings. This is simply not a state with a long list of cities with high end nursing homes. This place was stronger in some categories than others, but it didn't have terrible scores in any of our major areas discussed below. More information about its category grades is available in the next paragraph.
We wanted to note that this city's nursing grade was superior to its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Casper a B in this category, which is one of our better scores. The nursing score considers several factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. In addition, Casper received quality inspection reports this year as well, earning a B in this category. In the last two categories, we gave Casper a grade of B for short-term care and a grade of B- in the area of long-term care.
