This place's nursing homes received an excellent city grade of A, so what this city lacks in quantity, it makes up for in quality.

Headlining this city's stellar report card is its inspection score, which you can find in the next section.
As mentioned above, this city received a strong overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received nearly perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Auburn an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. In addition, the city performed especially well in terms of its long-term care grade as well. As a result, Auburn received a grade of A in this category. Rounding out its straight A report card, Auburn were awarded an A for its nursing grade and an A in the area of short-term care.
