In addition to performing well in its overall grade, most of the facilities in Pacific Grove performed especially well in terms of its inspection grade. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, Pacific Grove received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. The city performed spectacularly well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. Consequently, we awarded Pacific Grove an A in this category. Rounding out its straight A report card, Pacific Grove received elite grades for our nursing and short-term care areas as well.
