We found this city grade was considerably better than the city grade of C received by the nearby city of Frankfort. While that is not a terrible grade, Ottawa appears to be a far better option. The best part of this city's strong report card was its nursing homes' inspection reports. Inspection grades are discussed in the next section
To go along with its great overall grade, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A- in our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. The city earned a grade of B+ in our short-term care category. In our final two categories, this place earned a B in our nursing category and a B- in the area of long-term care.
