To pair with its great overall grade, we awarded this city's nursing homes an A+ for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. In addition, we also wanted to point out that we awarded the city an A- in our long-term care rating. In the last two categories, we gave the city middle of the road grades for our nursing and short-term care areas.
