To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Cartersville an A in our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. The city earned a grade of B+ for our long-term care category. In the other categories we looked at, we gave the city a B- for short-term care and a grade of C in the area of nursing.
