To go along with its great overall grade, we awarded the nursing homes in Flushing an A for our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. In addition, Flushing also received strong long-term care rating where it earned a grade of B in this area. In our final two categories, Flushing were awarded a B- for its short-term care grade and a grade of C for nursing.
