In addition to performing well in its overall grade, the nursing homes in Malvern performed especially well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received virtually perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, Malvern received one of our best grades in that area with a grade of A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse.
