This city received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of the city's nursing homes received almost perfect health inspections in recent years. We gave Punta Gorda an impressive grade of A+ for this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports.
