Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed especially well in our inspections category. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received nearly flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, we awarded Elberton one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. Elberton's second best category is long-term care, where we gave it a B- in this area. Lastly, we awarded the city middle of the road grades for our nursing and short-term care categories.
