This city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its facilities received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Boca Raton an elite grade of A- for this category. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death.
