This city's best category grade was in the area of inspections. In this category, we gave the city a grade of B+. Inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. The second best grade we gave this city in any area was its short-term care rating, where it received a B-. In the other categories we looked at, this place were awarded a grade of C for its long-term care score and a grade of F in nursing. While we found its other categories to be acceptable, this low nursing grade isn't a great sign for nursing staffing levels.
