This city received a somewhat average overall grade, but we really want to point out that some of its facilities nearly flawless health inspections the past few years. We gave it an elite grade of A- in this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This city received its next highest score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-, which also isn't too bad. In our final two categories, the city received a B- for its long-term care grade and a grade of D for nursing. While we found the rest of its profile to be decent, this nursing rating is not a good sign for levels of nursing staffing.
