As mentioned above, this city received a great overall grade, but we especially wanted to point out that some of its facilities received virtually perfect health inspections the past few years. We gave Cary an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. The city also received an impressive short-term care score where it received a B+ in this category. Wrapping up its profile, Cary received strong grades for our nursing and long-term care areas as well.
