While its overall grade was fairly ordinary, we awarded Mchenry a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Mchenry also received an impressive short-term care score where it received a B in this area. In our final two categories, the city earned grades of B- and D for our nursing and long-term care areas respectively. Despite otherwise respectable category grades, this city's poor long-term care grade could be a problem for many people.
