This city's nursing homes' most impressive category grade came in the area of government inspections. In this area, we gave Cumberland a B. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This city received its second best grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-, which also isn't a bad grade. Finally, the city received a B- for its long-term care rating and a C in nursing.
