We wanted to note that this city's inspection score outpaced its overall grade. In fact, we awarded Searcy a B+ for its inspection score, which is one of our better scores. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. The next best grade we gave Searcy in any area was its long-term care score, where we gave it a B-. In the other categories we looked at, we awarded the city a B- in our short-term care category and a grade of C in nursing.
