This city received a great overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's facilities received nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Fort Collins an impressive grade of A- in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. The city also really excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it an A-. In the other categories we looked at, we gave the city slightly below average grades for our nursing and long-term care categories.
