Finally, this city has the distinction of being the twelfth best city in all of Minnesota according to our ratings.
As mentioned above, this city's nursing homes received a strong overall grade, but we also wanted to point out that some of its facilities received almost flawless health inspections the past few years. We awarded Fergus Falls an impressive grade of A in this area. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. In addition, we also wanted to emphasize that we gave Fergus Falls an A in our short-term care rating. Rounding out its first-rate report card, the city were awarded an A in our nursing category and a B in long-term care.
