This city's only nursing home received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Simi Valley received its next highest score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this place a B- in this category, which is a decent grade.
