One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. Horseheads received a B in the area of long-term care. In the last two categories, we gave Horseheads terrible grades for our nursing and short-term care areas respectively.
