This city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave Mesa an elite grade of A- for this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. In addition, we also awarded this city an A- in our short-term care category. In our final two categories, the city received a B for its long-term care score and a B- in nursing.
