We discuss inspections in the next section
In addition to having excellent nursing homes on the whole, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where we gave it an A+. Not many cities fared this well in this category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. We also wanted to point out that we awarded the city an A- for our nursing category. Wrapping up its impressive report card, we awarded the city favorable scores for our short-term care and long-term care areas as well.
