Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed especially well in our inspections category. In fact, some of its facilities received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Muncie one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This city received its next best score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-, which is also respectable.
