This city's overall grade was propped up by its government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This city earned its second highest score in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which is also a decent grade. Finally, the city earned a C in our nursing category and a C in short-term care.
