While this city received a middle of the road overall grade, its inspection grade is more impressive than the city's overall grade. Due to some of its nursing homes receiving strong inspection reports this year, Peoria received one of our better grades in that area with a B. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Inspections appears to be this city's next best grade. The city earned a grade of B- in this category. In our final two categories, this place earned a B- for its nursing score and a B- in long-term care.
