This city received an inspection grade which is stronger than its overall grade. We gave them a favorable grade of B in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. In addition, Franklinton also received one of our higher scores in our long-term care category, with a grade of B. In our final two categories, we gave Franklinton grades of B- and D for our short-term care and nursing categories respectively. Even with an otherwise decent profile, a nursing grade in this range may be an ominous sign for nursing staffing levels.
