Despite receiving a terrible overall grade, this city performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, many of the nursing homes here received relatively impressive inspection reports this year. Consequently, Carlinville received one of our better ratings in that category with a B+. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. The city's next best category is nursing, where it received a D. In the last two categories, we gave the city terrible grades for our short-term care and long-term care categories.
