Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, the nursing homes in Northbrook performed remarkably well in our inspections category. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Northbrook one of our best ratings in that category with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This city received its next highest score in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-, which is also a decent grade. In the last two categories, Northbrook received a C for nursing and a C for long-term care.
