While its overall score was somewhat average, this city's nursing homes performed remarkably well in our inspection category. In fact, we awarded the city an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This city's second best category is long-term care, where we gave it a B- in this category. In our final two categories, Fayetteville were awarded a C for its short-term care score and a grade of D in the area of nursing. In spite of an otherwise decent profile, a nursing rating this poor may be a bad sign for levels of nurse staffing.
