While its overall score was not elite, the nursing homes in Watsonville performed extremely well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Watsonville earned a B for our long-term care category. In the last two categories, we gave Watsonville grades of B- and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively.
