To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this city's nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This city also earned one of our better scores in short-term care, where we awarded it a B+ for the category. In our final two categories, this place earned a B- for its long-term care grade and a grade of D in nursing. Obviously, nursing proved to be this city's weak link, but one bad category score isn't the end of the world.
