In fact, we awarded its facilities a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. In addition, the city also received strong long-term care grade where it earned a B+ in this category.
