As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its nursing homes received virtually perfect health inspections in recent years. We awarded Farmington an elite grade of A- in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. In addition, the city earned a grade of B+ for the city's long-term care rating. Finally, the city earned middle of the road grades for our short-term care and nursing areas.
