Despite receiving a fairly ordinary overall grade, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of its facilities received virtually flawless inspection reports this year. As a result, New Castle received one of our best grades in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. New Castle also earned one of our better grades in the area of long-term care, with a B. In our final two categories, the city earned a B- for short-term care and a grade of D for nursing. Despite an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating of this caliber may be a bad sign for nursing staffing levels.
