Despite receiving a somewhat average overall grade, the nursing homes in Oakland performed extremely well in the area of inspections. In fact, some of the nursing homes in the city received almost perfect inspection reports this year. Consequently, we awarded Oakland one of our highest grades in that area with an A-. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Oakland received a grade of B+ in the area of short-term care.
